It seems odd to be writing a review concerning a product that has not yet been released, but when I heard about this upcoming DVD, I really got excited. One of the pivotal events of my life was watching the Davy Crockett television shows on our family's old black and white Motorola television when they first appeared. Sure, I had the t-shirt and the plastic model of "Old Betsy", Davy's trusty rifle. I still quote the Disney version of his famous motto: "Be sure you're right, then go ahead." My friends and I spent many happy hours defending the walls of the Alamo (actually the cinder block back wall of our property) from Santa Anna's men. We would take turns being Davy and his friend Georgie Russell, who uttered the never-forgotten words I quoted above just before his heroic death. Now that I've grown up and read extensively in history, I know that a lot of what Disney put into the series isn't true, (for example, there was no Georgie Russell) but who cares? We all need heroes and role models in our life, and Davy Crockett, with his self-deprecating wit and sense of honor and justice was perfect for my generation. I'm just so happy this series is being released, for I will now be able to share my boyhood hero with my grandchildren; they need heroes too.
