Critical Article Review #1

The author of “Be Sure You’re Right, Then Go Ahead”: The Davy Crockett Gun Craze is written by Sarah Nilsen. The purpose of this article is to explain in detail about how Davy Crockett became the symbol that was known for guns and coonskin hats. The author does not specifically classify what the purpose of the article is. Instead, the purpose of the article is stated in the details given about how the legend became a legend and the part Walt Disney played in it. The war, televisions shows, families, and even toy makers along with many other companies that could profit from Davy Crockett and The ...view middle of the document...

Furnishings, wall paper, toys, games, and clothes were all used to promote gunplay. Coonskin, rifles, steer horns, and even gun holsters were in the bedrooms of adults. Specifically the article states, “The 1950’s represented a period in which the immense popularity of the television western was instrumental in making the gun into an essential part of American childhood.”

In the article, the author listed many resources to prove the influence that Davy Crockett had in gunplay becoming such a normal and natural thing. Some resources that the author listed was Disneyland, ABC: Davy Crockett in Indian Fighter, Davy Crockett goes to Congress, The Ballad of Davy Crockett, Life Magazine, Davy Crockett: King of the Wild, Frontier, Davy Crocket mambo, newspapers, books, and even comics. In contradiction to anti-hunting and anti-gun films such as Bambi, Disney had two main events to transform them. One of them was the strike at the studio in 1941 and the second one was Disney’s enlistment of the whole studio for military use during World War II. Sarah Nilen tells us that by 1943, Disney was producing most of the films for the Navy, Army, and other Government operated agencies. Sarah also states that by 1945, Disney was declaring that “The generation that used the motion picture to help train its fighters and its workers into the mightiest nation in history, is not apt to ignore the motion picture as an essential tool in the labor of enlightenment, civilization and peace.”
