Overview

Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier, didn't become a nationwide craze and merchandising cash cow until Disney got hold of him in 1954. In the meantime, however, there was Columbia's Davy Crockett, Indian Scout, which in fact had little to do with the famed frontiersman. George Montgomery stars as Crockett's same-named nephew, a military scout assigned to insure safe passage for wagon trains. Someone has been tipping off the Indians as to the trains' movements, and Crockett wants to find out who before more blood is spilled. Suspicion immediately falls upon Davy's Tonto-like Indian companion Red Hawk Philip Reed, but the answer lies somewhere else in the supporting cast. Also appearing in Davy Crockett, Indian Scout are Ellen Drew as the mixed-blood heroine, Robert Barrat as a muscular Indian chief and Paul Guilfoyle as a heavily disguised undercover agent.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
George Montgomery makes a good hero in this low-budget oater, but he wears an ordinary cowboy hat and not the coonskin cap the title of the film would suggest. The "cheating" doesn't stop with a misleading title, however. In an effort to economize, producer Edward Small used quite a bit of stock footage from his own 1940 release Kit Carson, which had starred Jon Hall in the title-role. The original film was produced on location at Kayenta, Arizona, and the footage adds much needed production value to Davy Crockett, Indian Scout, an otherwise completely routine effort enlivened only by a good performance from Phillip Reed as the title character's loyal Indian friend.
