I have an album of Ed Ames' songs. What a great actor and singer. It's an LP vinyl from the '60s or early '70s. A real keepsake. Ed was very handsome, too - both as Min go and part of The Ames Brothers group. I loved Davey Crockett ... wish the old episodes would be on TV again.
lots of fess parker stories...one of the best...my now deceased husband taught mr. parker how to instrument fly
A very nice story. Thanks for sharing.
When I was 13 I worked at a coffee shop in Newport Beach, Calif., as a dish washer. Fess Parker had a boat he kept in the harbor there and he would come there on the weekends to work on it. He would come into the cafe to eat lunch and I would take my break and eat lunch with him. He was just making his shows at that time and was a very nice person and 56 years later I still hold him in high regard.
Fess Parker, everybody's hero in a coon skin cap. The indian Mingo was played by a crooner . . . Ed Ames of the fabulous Ames Brothers, who made the most famous tomahawk throw in history one night, on the Johnny Carson show! You can find it on any compilation of Tonight Show bloopers. OUCH!!!! If it's not THE funniest moment in the entire history of TV it's certainly in the Top Five!
