Love or hate the mythologized cultural import of the Alamo, go ahead and celebrate Davy Crockett's birthday. When else are you going to find a good excuse to get whiskey-drunk all day wearing a 'coon skin hat?
Also, when else can you watch related ridiculous clips of John Wayne, Billy Bob Thornton AND Fess Parker?
This classic has the Duke getting a lump in his throat for Republics and babies. I mainly chose it for the blank stare Laurence Harvey delivers after Wayne's line: "you don't get lard lessen you boil the hog."
Billy Bob Thornton as "The Screamer." Hehe.
Davy Crockett got totally confused on that Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland.
