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)
