How Would You Like to Spend a Groovy Afternoon with Davy Jones and Kurt Russell?

Davy’s a big fan of movies and Kurt Russell just happens to be one of the best actors today! After Davy saw Kurt in “Follow Me Boys,” he told Ann Moses he’d like to meet him.

So when Davy finally had an afternoon off the Monkee set, he buzzed over to the Disney lot and spent some time with Kurt. Our Monkee Spectacular cameras were there to catch the action.
