After the surprise success of his 1954 Davy Crockett TV miniseries, Walt Disney assembled the three hour-long 'Crockett' episodes into this 93 minute theatrical feature. The film is divided into three long episodes, each separated by a title card. Part one shows Crockett the Indian fighter, 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.
