Just for Fun: King of the Wild Frontier

Actor Fess Parker passed away today.  He played both Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone on television.  These shows didn't run very long in prime time, but they did run in syndication for years afterward.  As a kid, I would watch them on Saturday afternoon when a sports game wasn't on, perhaps just before the 6 pm news.

Here's The Ballad of Davy Crockett, the long play version from the soundtrack to the theatrical movie. Disney connected the first three television episodes to make a feature-length presentation.

Davy, Davy Crockett,
King of the wild frontier!
