If you visit Rodney’s Grill inside the Fess Parker Doubletree, you’ll notice that during the evening hours they’re constantly projecting episodes from the Davy Crockett saga on the wall above the bar. Parker, a hotshot actor during the era of Dwight D. Eisenhower, starred as Crockett on the Disney hour in 1955 and ’56, and for a while was almost as big as the Beatles or Elvis. But every damn night must get old if you’re a Rodney’s regular. If I was running the show I would also screen clips from some of Parker’s other films including The Great Locomotive Chase (my personal favorite in which Parker played a Union spy and saboteur), Hell Is For Heroes, Battle Cry, Old Yeller and Them!
