Davy Crockett and the River Pirates

Davy Crockett and the River Pirates is a 1956 American adventure film produced by Walt Disney Productions. It is an edited compilation of the last two episodes of the Davy Crockett television miniseries, Davy Crockett's Keelboat Race and Davy Crockett and the River Pirates, starring Fess Parker as Davy Crockett.


Tennessee frontiersman Davy Crockett and his best friend Georgie Russell are transporting pelts to Maysville, Kentucky after a successful season of trapping and hunting. On the Ohio River, they encounter Mike Fink, the self-proclaimed "king of the river". Fink refuses to take Crockett and Russell downriver on his keelboat unless they pay his toll, which they cannot afford.
