Davy Crockett comes to Cherokee, NC

In 1953 my mom was 20 years old and working in a craft store in Cherokee, NC. She was approached to be an extra in a Davy Crockett movie that was being filmed there.  She remembers being dressed in a long dress and bonnet.   She smiles when she talks about how much fun she had.  I bought the movie and found her but the photo is not great.   She is the background below with Buddy Ebsen. (she has the bonnet)
