Parker signs cover to sheet music "The Ballad of Davy Crockett" in gold ink
Sheet Music signed: "Fess Parker", 6p, 9x12. "The Ballad of Davy Crockett", words by Tom Blackburn, music by George Bruns. Pictures Fess Parker as Davy Crockett on the front cover; additional scenes from the Disneyland television production on back cover. 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. 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. Currently, he devotes most of his time to the Fess Parker Winery and Vineyards in Los Olivos, California, the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort in Santa Barbara and the Fess Parker's Wine Country Inn and Spa. Ink scribble at upper right margin. Lightly creased and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
