Trivia

The movie was actually two episodes of Disney's tv show spliced together and released as a profitable feature film. Walt Disney filmed his show in color even though few color tv's were being sold, yet. As a result, his Davy Crockett episodes could be turned into instant movies by stitching the episodes together.

Goofs

When the stunt man standing in for Clem Bevans as Cap'n. Cobb fell into the river when his boat's tiller broke off, his white wig came off in the water, revealing the stunt man's own dark hair. See more »

I loved this movie as a kid...and as an adult!
13 June 2018 | by mmcglass-90045See all my reviews

Great Disney sequel to the first Disney movie on Davy Crockett. I enjoyed the characters, particularly Mike Fink, who gave the film a lot of humor. I particularly liked the scene when Mike Fink had to eat his hat after losing the keelboat race. Meaning, in Disney fashion, the "sort of" villain was actually a tough guy with honor. Of course, at the end, the King of the River and King of the Wild Frontier part as friends.

Excellent plot, good story, good action and a lot of good humor.
