This may of been one of other reasons why he was disliked by some of his fellow Congressmen. It all started with a great idea and a little hard work in 2011. It's funny because it's like, oh yeah we can't release this movie because it's only been 53 years, I guess we'll have to wait a couple more because everyone has been waiting for the 55th anniversary of this! Nothing to do with black stereotypes, either.
The fact of the matter is that the Centaurette, whether or not it presents an offensive image it does , presents an anachronistic and tone-shattering one that totally destroys the entire milieu set up in The Pastoral Symphony. As for 20k, they probably want to tie in with the eventual remake, which may not happen for years.

Just like my towel-Superman cape!! Extras: The only extra included on this disc is The Lone Chipmunks, an enjoyable six-minute Chip and Dale short. Both movies are designed for all ages. You know, because that worked so well in last summer's King Arthur movie. It was great when I was 12! And Song of the South sucks.

Audio: The audio is presented in a monaural Dolby Digital 2. Much clearer image and better sound. Also, wars were fought for a variety of reasons, and winners write the history. Could one imagine today what Crockett's biggest gripes would be as a congressman. The quality of the video, given that this film is 50 years old, is quite impressive. Still, I would argue that the film is as much of a reflection of 1950s Politically Correct sensibilities as, say, Pocahontas was so 1995.
Granted, given that the Three Little Pigs are quite trafe, I'm probably stretching here.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy many of the directors and film makers of today however they cannot stand along side of John Ford or Walt Disney in capturing the imaginations of moviegoers, especially youthful ones.
Of course the re-edited version came out in 1981, so maybe there is hope for a 2016 release! I wouldn't find such things hilarious, I'd be showering Disney with moolah. He was very opened to all.

The disc itself contains two features: Davy Crockett: King of the Wild Frontier 1954 and Davy Crockett and the River Pirates 1956. Final Thoughts Definitely a product of its times, I nonetheless was able to enjoy much of Davy Crocket: 50th Anniversary Double Feature without too much smugness. So is Disney pissing on its own legacy? Surely, Davy Crockett: King of the Wild Frontier, at first glance, seems about as Politically Correct as a bachelor party weekend in Bangkok. Disney fans and collectors owe it to themselves to pick up this disc. The transfer is mostly clean, with only some minor speckling available at times.

Fact: -- Davy Crockett was real life frontiersman fed up with politics as a Congressman especially when he served in Congress. It's terrible, easily the worst Disney film to emerge from the era. Historically not 100% but for kids it tells a story and sets it in a timeline that helps them understand that the whole world did not always have I-pads, I-phones, and video games.

To that end, Davy Crocket: 50th Anniversary Double Feature makes for a sweet little diversion that should please Disney fans. I mean it blows, and blows hard. They should have included the Fess Parker interview and examination of the Davy Crockett craze, both of which are found in the Davy Crockett limited edition tin Disney released a few years back.
