This all-star filmization of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn surgically removes the sociological subtext of Mark Twain's novel. The emphasis is on the adventuresome escapades of Huck and fugitive slave Jim, and on the comic elements inherent in the characters of the King and the Duke.

Audience Reviews for The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

68/100. Although it takes quite a few liberties with the Mark Twain novel, the appearances of many well known guest stars and an exceptional quality in its production make it a very entertaining movie. It appears they were trying to make it more of a movie geared more towards family viewing.

Fine cinematography and art direction. I was never bored, it wisely is not too long. Eddie Hodges is a little weak as Huckleberry Finn, and since it is such a pivotal role, that does hurt the effectiveness of the film somewhat. Tony Randall is very good, Buster Keaton has a nice bit as well, as does Andy Devine, Sterling Holloway and Neville Brand.

James Higgins

One of the films I really liked growing up. Good children's film but is a bit dated when viewed again with adult eyes.
