Shown in character as Davy Crockett from an episode of The Wonderful World of Disney in this black and white photograph
Photograph signed: "Best Wishes!/Fess Parker" in black felt tip, B/w 10x8. Fess Parker (1924-2010) began his film career with a one-scene bit part as a terrified witness in the 1954 horror classic Them that brought him to the attention of Walt Disney. Disney then cast him as Davy Crockett in a series of phenomenally successful TV specials. The theme song of his 1955 Davy Crockett television film, Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier, was recorded not only by Parker but later by such diverse artists as Eddy Arnold, Louis Armstrong, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Burl Ives and Mannheim Steamroller. Coon skin caps, as shown here, became an icon of 1950s pop culture. Parker remained on the Disney lot until 1959, starring in such films as The Great Locomotive Chase (1956), Westward Ho, the Wagons! (1957), Old Yeller (1957) and Light in the Forest (1958). He later recreated yet another frontier hero, starring on TV's Daniel Boone from 1964-1969. Parker made appearances on various programs but retired from the industry in 1974. In later years he devoted most of his time to his California winery and resorts. Fine condition.
