Subject: RE: Obit: Fess Parker: Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone
I read or saw that Buddy Ebson had been schedualed for the part of Davy untill Fess showed up. Sucks for Buddy, 'specially after that thing with the Tin Man in '39. I have both theatrical releases on DVD. I played them for my granddaughter when she was 4. For the following year it was all she would watch

As I was headin' away from town,

I aimed to grin a wildcat down.

But just as I begun to stare

There come a growlin' grizzly bear

and bang went ol' Betsy

my trusty gun is Betsy

I can travel far and wide with Betsy by my side.

Fare Thee well, Mr Parker. Mike
