I'd like to thank Michael Wallace once again for coming on the show. If you WANNA learn more about the history behind the Real David. Crockett go grab. Michael's book called David Crockett the lion of the West. But that's just one of Michael's books as he mentioned at the end there. He's working on his twentieth book.

Podcast DOT COM. Okay now it's time for the answer to our two truths and a lie game from the beginning of the episode as a refresher here are the two truths and one lie number one Davy. Crockett was responsible for the peace negotiations that ended the war with the Creek nation number two Davy Crockett was captured at the Alamo and later killed by order of General Santa Anna Number. Three the Real David. Crockett met a theatrical version of himself called Nimrod wildfire. Did you find out which one is ally. Let's start with the end number three. That is true as Michael explained the subtitle of his book. David Crockett the line of the West. The subtitle being the line of the west part that comes from a play where at one of the shows in Washington DC. The Real Crockett met a theatrical character called Nimrod wildfire that was based on his life. Well perhaps a more accurate way to phrase that would be that the plays character was based on all the tall tales written about Davy Crockett Adventures. That brings us to number two. That is also true as Michael explained the movie showing fess. Parker's version of Davy. Crockett going down at the Alamo swinging. Old Betsy over. His head is not true. What really happened was that Mr Crockett was captured and later killed at the order of General Santa Anna. That means the lie is number one. The movie tries to make it seem like Davy Crockett. Some sort of a peace negotiator that ended the war with the creeks. What is Michael? Explained is just not true at all that just about wraps this episode before we go the last thing I like to do on each episode is share. How much time and effort went into creating the episode now.

"I like a little facial hair too, but it has that more like the gristle like the wild frontier con. Exactly. Like he is, you know, using an old razor just in the wild and he can't sharp in it. So he's just getting as good as he can. You know, like how my facial hair is right now, just kidding. Exactly. Like him. Favorite scene. I think is gonna be the bar scene where like Davey and Mike Fink are going at it not well, I guess not going at it, but Mike Fink does the thing where he likes shoots the gun from behind him, hits the pan, and then like hits the glass on the Cup on his head in the Davydova thing where healing catches it in his mouth when he doesn't really do it. I love that scene because it was like, first of all, it was just the chemistry of Davy and Georgie like they were reading each other like so, well, David just say like, hey, cover for me in Georgie, just go like he, no, he knew that he hit that thing with SAS Brill in it. But like George just went and plugged it up for him so that they would think he caught it in his mouth. Fair. Yeah, you know they were out there making sure that they could leave whenever that whole little scene was finished. It was just, it was funny. I liked it. That was all you stole everything. He still everything I'm going to is my favorite picture though. He grew on me elected last, but he grow even more with this one. And that is my favorite scene. I think it's kinda funny because so Davey like pretends the catch it in his mouth and like wiles everybody. But then like in Davy Crockett the wealth frontier. He could probably pull something like that off against his older self, like he just things just come to him. He doesn't have to try like whatever he sets his mind to like, he's just call. It just happens. You know, he's very confident. I feel like that would have been like a real life thing. Thirty years ahead of time. I agree. Yeah. Well, I'm gonna go to because Meghan stole Davey. Of course, Dave was my favorite, but actually, Mike think grew on me in the movie. And at the end, I really liked him as a character like just because the character development and my favorite scene was actually when they were fighting in the water with the Indians at the second time in actually, my favorite part was right went on, Mike think was about, like you tried punching moose, which is like the. Mousse is like the lug. Guyane thinks team is, but we used to. Just thought it was over dramatic. So I thought was really funny. That was probably my favorite scene also the bar, but I didn't want to sound like I'm copying you guys. I need to quote will something else I did the cop out, but really that was my favorite. Okay, least favorite character seen least favorite character is gonna have to be like the head honcho of the bad guys who are like, pretending to be Indians. He. Scumbag like just a total scumbag and. Least favorite scene. I don't know if I really have. Okay. Let me let me think. Least favorite scene, I guess. I don't know. No, I don't have one I didn't. I didn't dislike anything that I watched in honestly, in this one like nothing made may super mad in this movie either. You know, like there have been parts in movies that have come up recently where it's like, oh, that super controversial. That bothers me. I mean, obviously it was controversial that they're white people imitating Indians to try and get away with crime. That sucked. So I guess just the whole concept of that was sucky, but. Davy fix it, like he does. David. Least favorite. I'm gonna have to go with Mike think even though he the girl, but his laughs made me wanna like punch him in the face. He probably just blew people's eardrums out. Will he blew my eardrums out when I was watching the movie so blame? It was kind of like a maniacal laugh, but it wasn't high pitched. It was just like a some kind of fake. It was. Yeah, he made think of like the guy that plead can't think of this name the pirate gun from Treasure Island. But like that was that persona was okay because he's a pirate..

Walt Disney film show in color, even though few color TV's being sold as of this time. And as a result on his Davy Crockett episodes could be turned into instant movies by stitching associated. So kinda just like so on TV they were broadcasting black and white. I guess that's what gen that's what drew people into it. That was the those literally, the only difference in the theater because listening, I guess it could have been shown in color, but not many people had colors. Most people saw it lacking late. Only the rich people had TV's in colors. True. I asked I was talking to my mom today. Actually. She asked she called was like, oh, what movie are you doing tonight as like Davy Crockett and the river pirates? Have you ever seen it? And she's like, no. And I'm like, mom, you grew up in the fifties and sixties how you not seen any of these movies that I'm talking about. You void Davy Crockett. That's kind of what she's like. You need ask your dad. I wonder if he liked it and I was like, yeah, maybe. But like then I was asking her, I was like, you didn't watch. The TV show wasn't like super popular. You know, like I mean, I know that she was definitely part of the Beatles craze. So like n people to sort of craze and she's like, Meg, we didn't even have a color TV and house like, oh, yeah, you lived with. At one point near light. She's like, we didn't have as many TV's as we have in a household. Now back that we had one in my dad hog it all the time I was likely should heal that. My little brother asked me one time.

I think that, but we did that to my dad, but my dad thought it was hilarious. You also his cake was a roll of toilet paper with poop, cupcakes. You can see where I probably get some of my sense of humor. Well, thank God for that. 'cause we. Thanks. So the actor who played Jaakko who's the dude with the cigar in the banjo gets Georgie drunk at the bar. He gained fame in the role of the heroic air force captain battling alien in the thing from another world. But what I thought was weird was like he has run hair. It kept him from lead roles in color films. So he was fine in like black and white foams, but it was color just because he had run here. You can't control that did not have die back then what are they have against gingers man. No, I have no idea. I look genders. Sickening laboring too much attention. I don't know what am I favor?

Trying to remember the movie with your costs. Yeah. And you go. So we go back in time to David Crockett before the rocket. And we meet my think, and we discovered keelboats. Now we know where those are from the park at Disneyland. Then they go on keel boat race, Davy Crockett wins. They make it to New Orleans first and then they discover river pirates and actually people dressing up Indians, try and blame it on them. There's haunting havoc, but then DVD's the date. Twenty seven. Twenty seven. Nice. No coughing, no cops. Would you like to go? Sure, I'll go next. All right. Any modern get set. Go very Davey. George, you decide to bring some down to New Orleans. They raise my think down the river, David Crockett wins, then they can buy Indians finding out that there are some white people disguising his Indians, murdering, other white people trying to blame it on the Indians.

It is a live action adventure film from nineteen fifty. Six again starring fess Parker's Davy Crockett. It was shot in cave in rock, Illinois this film next as a prequel to Davy Crockett king of the wild frontier because as we know, DV dies at the end of that movie. So the only way for wall to do sequels was actually to do prequels slum, and it is an edited compilation of the fourth and fifth stories of the Disney television series Davy Crockett, which includes Davy, Crockett, kill boat race, and Davy Crockett, and the river pirates. Those both were broadcast on TV in nineteen fifty five originally. So also this is the ninth live action phone produced by Walt Disney productions, because we know that we've switched over to Walt Disney productions still are KO. No more. See ya. Buffalo Shia.

Yeah, like him along great character development. You're like. So he kind of seems like a reckless fighter a little bit in the beginning of the rules, right? He's like, oh, I like the one part where he looks at George and he's like, I guess we're gonna have to start disobeying orders again. Because he didn't get his way when he was talking to the general. But he, I think that he's just a very likable character. He can't not like him. He doesn't do anything bad and into be honest. So I had never seen this movie, but I did know that he interacted with Indians and I immediately assumed it was going to be bad. I did too, but watching the movie, I was like, oh my God, he's an advocate for them. Like, how cool is that? So then he turned into this like really cool, progressive character that I liked, and I was like, oh my gosh, she's going against everything in congress basically. And then they try and keep him out. That was crazy. They send him on this tour to try and keep him out of congress that he can't try and talk people out of voting for this Indian removal Bill..

"A little crush. She's got a big crush, but she, I mean, like, you know, talking about seeing them on TV might hearing about where they're gonna be all of merchandise that was all over the place like she if that is the equivalent. Davy Crockett, fifties. It's crazy. Yeah. I would say that the two frozen in early two thousand ten. Mag- just let it go. I just I just pictured. I just picture mums with their strollers literally running people over to get in lines, meet on Elsa in the morning, magic kingdom. Let me tell you guys. It happened. I worked at. We used to have to hold a rope in front of the crowd in walked them back to fantasy land because people were getting injured from being run over by strollers not joking. I wish I was. Well, no, because I don't. I'm not obviously not a girl, so I don't like the whole Princess craze. I do my favorite Princess, but I would never like if I tried those like I wanna meet on all side be like, you have to wait till the line is like dead. You are not going to. I'm not getting trampled by a bunch of mums because you wanna see us like, yeah, no, I mean, and it was like a floor our way every day back then to meet them. It was insane about the telling you to meet Milano. I don't think that Milan has a meet and greet. She only comes out for the party. Yep. I know. All right, from fix back to David Crockett. So the ballot of David Crockett which everyone knows and it's been stuck in my head proposal like two weeks now. Is the only song ever to be charted on Billboard's top one hundred popular songs at the same time by three different artists. So there was a version by Bill Hayes, the version sung by fess Parker, and then another one by Ernie Ford, Tennessee, Ernie Ford's in Serey. So then I found this article that like was a fact checking of the ballad of Davy Crockett. So. Like it says he was born on a mountaintop in Tennessee. He was actually born on the banks of the Nullah Truckee river, which is not far from runs through really. And then it says that he killed a bear when he was only three. I'm sorry bar when he was only three turns out there's no evidence that he did that did ever claim to do so. But he did grow very skills, skillful hunter, bear hunting was kind of his trademark in his political campaigns, which is like, hilarious. That would never fly any other time than like now back then it's just like, can you imagine some, I don't give you imagined Obama going up there and being like a marine. Hundred people being like, yeah. Did he fight single-handed against the creek Indians? He volunteered to fight, but he was a smaller unimportant part of the creek war. Also, part of his legend is that he was a defender. Indian rights is true up to a point. He did vote on the right side of the issue in congress against Andrew Jackson's Indian removal Bill that was passed in resulted in the trail of tears. So he really was a friend to native Americans. Did he serve spell in congress, fixing up the government in laws in takeover Washington, he did go to congress and serve three terms. He was a well known figure because he came to symbolize the frontier, but he didn't get anything done. Really? Yes. Tim doesn't own subscription. My face. See, keep putting David Crockett on blast man a sorry. I mean he was. He was actually were putting the ballot on blast the ballot on blast. Yeah, clearly it was starting to pay cash tag belt on blast. So did they need him at the Alamo? He was volunteer of the song movie imply. He went to Texas to fight in Texas revolution, but that's not the case he went because all his life us moving west in search of better land, better opportunities. He had lost his reelection in congress, went back to ten see, but he can't stay in one place for very long. So he ended up going to Texas. Listen to fight, ended up in the limo, and that's how he died on March six of eighteen thirty six quote. Probably Elmo is the reason remember remember him today because it's a hugely important event in both the history and the mythology of Texas in Crockett was at the time the most famous person there..

"So someone named buddy absent. I looked up. He is in the Beverly hillbillies breakfast at Tiffany's, and then to TV shows bonanza gunsmoke which my dad used to watch every day. So I know they, I really love records the Tiffany, watched it in a while really games. I've never seen it either, but I know I should. So that doesn't mean much to me, but I know other people know who he is. So buddy ebbs. It was going to play David Crockett until Disney saw fess Parker in the movie them which is in nineteen fifty four. And when he saw him, he said, that's my Davy Crockett. And he became so identified with the role in nineteen sixty four. He starred in another TV series about Daniel Boone who's another American frontiers, man. I feel like he definitely after doing this. I feel like he was typecast oh, he's in the water. It's kinda like hot blanking, Clint Eastwood, big time, cowboy frontier, dune. You mean. So wall so that if he had known the success that David Crockett was going to have, he wouldn't have killed him off the third TV episode there yo MAG. Yup. But he found a way around it as we know. I mean, while sticks to history but doesn't always stick history. So like, yeah, everybody knows he dies in the Alamo, but if anybody was gonna undo that it would have been a few. So this film made a million dollars despite the fact that over fifty percent of the US had already seen it on TV. So this was due in part to the fact that the reviews and promotional material for the film didn't give any indication that it was a couple of compilation to the three one hour Davy Crockett, TV episodes, carpet, Indian, fighter, David, carpet, the ELO. The only difference between the TV movie version was at the theatrical version was in color. So ABC probably worth going to. I think that I mean what they have released nightmare bunch of times in the film and the one time it was three d, I s it. Yeah, you know what I mean is is different right kid. You ain't time nightmares in theater. Go Gonna see go see it. it. We just went to go see Harry Potter leaders for the anniversary. So I will about that. So ABC ABC TV which aired first Disneyland did not broadcast in color the time. So there was no way for being color when it came out. The this was the most successful early example of merchandise licensing licensing? Yes. I just want to say that it blows my mind that my mom was alive during this time and there was no color TV. We've. Isn't it crazy how fast things change? Yeah, more so than I think I mean, this is I can talk about this because it's relevant and it's coming out today. Obama just speak to the university of Illinois, and he said that we are progressing faster than like ever in history like humanity is like just flying by with technology and stuff. I mean with the education that we're getting different, it's totally different keep, but everybody should listen to that speech. So good. He was very off topic, but. He's the Crockett of our time, but he doesn't hunt bars. Or granite. Turn granola bar. Tune. Even granted on an Indian. So there was the Crockett perfectly like included skin caps and bubblegum cards. Another examples of successful merchandise in like the nineteen fifties area was like half along Cassidy. Elvis Presley in the sixties. It was like the Beatles, the monkeys in the Batman TV series. So other big hitters along. So it'll debut. It's crazy to think that the Davy Crockett craze is on the level of the Beatles, the monkeys and Batman of the sixties. Yeah. I mean, like I can picture those crazes in my head. Yeah, I wasn't alive during them obviously. But like I mean, the Beatles are still nuts. My mom talks about my mom talks about the Beatles craze. 'cause I mean, she was. She was like ten. She has a little bit across good Paul. Oh yeah..

"So people were learning more so who the characters were what they were, but this was also American history. So if people in America, we're going to be learning any type of history. It would be American history over world history, you know? Yeah. And I think that that probably and I mean, it's it's been known for ages that like. To make it in the film industry. You have to make it in America because we are so populated, and this is just where the money is in this industry, you know. So it was so popular because America got it America understood this movie in this TV show. Got it. Interesting. Total sons. I think also like allowed history classes. You learn about Davy Crockett in some way, shape or form? Yeah. Like when I was in grade school, we learn about the bell. The Elmo, we'd learn about Davy Crockett, right? Like we heard about who he was. I don't remember watching any of the show than, but we might have. It was longtime ago, so like they're, you know, they're still teaching that now. So they were teaching people that back then to way more so than like the story of the sword, rose or rob ROY, the Scottish robinhood Nino name like people in America where learning that was moreover, exactly two people at the time. Right? We go on those fun facts. Yeah. Okay. So I usually look up fun facs. This is the first one that came up, but I didn't know who this was..

"Sparks national Davy Crockett craze with many Coon skin caps being sold as well as successful as well as a successful recording of the episode's theme song, the ballad of Davy Crockett, which we saying which we saying and. Yeah, I, I remember being. So whenever I was on the college program, we had classes that you could take. They still do this. I'm sure in one of them was just kind of about like the history of the company, and I remember them talking about the Davy Crockett craze, like this was one of the first times besides the whole Mickey Mouse craze with merchandise. This was like the next big craze with the frozen of fifty. Five kind of was like from more like the Moana now because. Yeah. So it was. It was crazy everybody wanted to consume hat. We still sell them in frontierland. I don't work anymore. I don't know why that we base still sell them in frontierland. And if he actually, if you go to Disney land, you can go on the canoes didn't do that. I know we'll have to do it. So the success of the film prompted Disney to create a sequel. However, Davy Crockett dies at the Alamo. So does need decides to do prequel movies which Timms actually on this next episode with us as well. Davy Crockett in the river pirates. Consisted of the final two episodes of the TV series. Does need like this is popular. How do I get this back? He died. I know. I wonder if like after it was so popular, he kind of regretted that on being. Oh, shoot. What else could I have done with his story? But it's a good idea to do prequels. I mean. Also debuts real dude. So he was he was doing his thing and like kindness stick in the history cannot only mean what Disney. Is not gonna. Tyne relief at the Alamo. Technically, you don't see him dies. So he could've just swung it. But you can, you know, that was what it meant at the end when they had the Texas flag. And yeah, for sure. The song when you don't forget about the Alamo, you're like, oh, shoot on, yeah. Yeah. This actually a really good movie though. Yeah, enjoyed advise. I haven't seen it since I was a kid. It'd been a long time. I can see why people would have a craze about it because it's unlike the other historical kind of things that Tamar venturous more. I feel more real. Yeah. Like Davy the way that they portrayed Davy earn any? No. Obviously that could have really been how he was. He was just a very real character like it's this nobody guy who is really good, who happens to be really good at fighting volunteers, him and his friend volunteer to go into the war there, amazing what they do. And then he kind of turns into this politician that is like for the people, you know, and he's just a very likable guy because I think a lot of people can relate to him like, oh, this just this guy, who's you know, had a fan. Family lost his wife and is just trying to like make a name for himself. And I think that it just like attracted people to like him in in because of that, it attracted people to like TV series too close. Like when you look at the other legends, like Robin Hood or ROY, I dunno like this one just had like a different humor to it wasn't just like dried history. There was like, yeah, like David hammer personnel. He was Vissen. This was American. I think that's another thing to Robin Hood and rob ROY. Those were based in the UK based off history from the UK that people probably didn't really learn a lot about. I think we talked about that in Robin Hood. Maybe I can't remember what movie we discussed that in one of our guests brought it up news like, you know. These movies probably didn't do very well because people didn't necessarily have the means to learn that history, knowing understand the story. Whereas if you were watching the story now we have the internet at our fingertips. We can be like, who is this character ruin it? So we Google the name and it comes up really? Okay. I understand what's going on now. Whereas with Davy Crockett first of all, it was a TV series. So there's a lot more information people were getting, which I think was helpful in the beginning..

"Of the lack of coherence to the political message of this movie matt pete any thoughts on mic supers legal again ms l a doesn't have the same as backup does i mean i have a slightly different read of maga in the sense that i see it as kind of also geared towards notions of conquest and and the idea of of national aggression so not just not necessarily just a davy crockett catchphrase but it's also about papering over large structural problems with the notion that by being angry and by being hostile you will improve your standing of everybody right then this manifested and things like wars and stuff like that and that it just feels like the kind of belligerence that is not to be trusted i think that that that that's that's maybe the big the clue perhaps is not necessarily what it means specifically like you know the idea of america first stuff has a very definitive history a lot of people aren't aware of it but once you are aware of it is the kind of thing you can't unsee right that you're using specific disk and we believe a lot in overthinking at i think in the historical relations of discourses that you can't necessarily repeat the same sentence and have it be have no association from the second time he said it to the first time you said it and so when you say things that white supremacists world saying back in the day like that associated with white supremacy but at the same time there's a lot of people who are not aware of what that what that connection and don't see it and don't know that it's there and i think that that maps onto the screen slavery plot pretty well in the sense that the guy who is selling his batman adam west the movie plot which is let's get all the world leaders onto a boat which i think is also a plot of an episode of tailspin i'm not sure but actually it's a little different it's all the magnates of industry that get on the spruce moose in that one but it's it's not going to dehydrate them but they are going to put them all under mind control this is a very adam west batman kind of blot and but the guy who's gathering everybody and serving as the guy who's selling this everybody has no idea what he's selling.
