fess parker dies

Actor Fess Parker, who personified the American pioneering spirit as the star of the adventure series Davy Crockett, has died at the age of 85, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Texas native starred in the popular Disney television show throughout the 1950s, and pictures of him holding a shotgun and wearing a pelt hat made him an iconic image in US culture. Parker also starred in the movie Old Yeller and as another frontiersman in the NBC series Daniel Boone.

Parker retired from show business in the 1970s and founded a popular winery and resort in the coastal city of Santa Barbara, just north of Los Angeles.
