The Davy Crockett Craze!

Davy Crockett...King of the Wild Frontier!



Fess Parker was born in Fort Worth, Texas, and raised on a farm in Tom Green County near San Angelo.  He enlisted in the U.S. Navy in the latter part of World War II, hoping to become a pilot. He was turned down because he was too tall at 6 feet 6 inches (1.98 m). He then tried to become a radioman gunner, but he was found too big to fit comfortably into the rear cockpit. He was finally transferred to the Marine Corps as a radio operator and shipped out for the South Pacific shortly before the atom bomb ended the war.
Discharged in 1946, he enrolled at Hardin–Simmons University on the GI Bill. After an automobile collision, he was stabbed in the neck by the other driver during an argument. He was an active member of the H-SU Players Club and transferred to the University of Texas in 1947 as a history major and continued to be active in drama. Parker graduated from UT in 1950 with a degree in history. He had been initiated into the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. Having one year remaining on his GI Bill, he studied drama at the University of Southern California, where he studied for a master's degree in theater history.

(To the tune of the Daniel Boone Theme Song - Add Your Own Verse)

Daniel Boone had a smile....yes a BIG smile,
and his eyes had a twinkle, and his smile was a sprinkle of glee.

          posts & follow all legal issues concerning copyright info.  We'll keep looking for better ways
          on this one.

Israel And Rosebud

Darby and his Tricorn hat costume.  Later, he dropped the vest, added a coonkin cap and knife in his boot.  We understand he had to lobby to get the knife.  We loved both outfits.  Which was  your favorite?
