Critic Reviews for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Audience Reviews for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
I'm currently reading a book on David O Selznick, and this was one of his productions, and it was free on youtube so i checked it out, plus i dont think id ever seen a full tom sawyer film, it's kinda crazy the racist things they got away with here, especially with the black boy, and naming a character injun joe, but kelly is really good as tom sawyer despite never acting before, but becky is kind of a useless twat, robson is real good as aunt polly, i never read the book and was never a huge fan of twain, but i guess it did an all right job
A little too much slapstick, but still pretty faithful to the book and pretty funny. Injun Joe isn't as scary now that I'm grown up. In fact he's almost laughably phony.
ONE OF THE BEST, IF NOT THE BEST VERSION OF THE CLASSIC MARK TWAIN STORY. THE CAST IS WONDERFUL, TOMMY KELLY IS A GREAT HUCK. MAY ROBSON SHINES AS AUNT POLLY AND WALTER BRENNAN IS EXCELLENT AS ALWAYS. VERY MEMORABLE PICTURE.
