"Davy Crockett King Of The Wild Frontier"-1955-Walt Disney-9" X 12"-16 pages-Official Souvenir Song Book. This vintage souvenir Walt Disney song folio features a front and back cover photo of Fess Parker. The song book features many photos of original scenes from "Davy Crockett". The song book features the music and lyrics to Ballad Of Davy Crockett,be Sure You're Right,Old Betsy,Farewell,I'm Lonely My Darlin,I Gave My Love. The songbook features the film story in action photos.Cashing in on the surprise success of his 1954 Davy Crockett TV miniseries (first presented on the weekly anthology Disneyland), Walt Disney assembled the three hour-long "Crockett" episodes into a 93 minute theatrical feature. While the re-editing process has created a few noticeable continuity gaps, the results are by and large satisfying: certainly audiences in 1955 were satisfied, if box office returns are any indication (and, of course, they are). Fess Parker plays Davy Crockett, Tennessee-born frontiersman, while Buddy Ebsen (Disney's original choice for Crockett) co-stars as Davy's sidekick George Russell. The film is divided into three long episodes, each separated by a title card. Part one shows Crockett the Indian fighter (politically correct? Of course not!); part two finds Davy winning a seat in the Nashville legislature, where his heroism is rather cynically exploited by presidential candidate Andrew Jackson (Basil Ruysdael); and part three concludes at the Alamo, with a discreet cutaway just before Davy meets his doom at the hands of Mexican general Santa Anna. Also appearing in this jerry-built film are Hans Conried as Thimblerig and Helene Stanley as Davy's wife Polly. And who could forget "The Ballad of Davy Crockett"ónot to mention those neato coonskin caps? Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier was followed in 1956 by a "prequel" (likewise cobbled together from three Disneyland episodes), Davy Crockett and the River Pirates.This song book originally sold for fifty cents.The song book has been autographed on the front cover by Fess Parker with a fountain pen in blue............BOTH SONG BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN USED CONDITION.........
