Movie Info

Mark Twain's classic tale is brought to the screen for the fourth time, this time with a tuneful score by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, who also wrote the screen adaptation. Johnny Whitaker stars as Tom Sawyer, with Jeff East in his first film role as Huck Finn. Jodie Foster is also on hand, playing the role of Becky Thatcher. This enjoyable family fare was nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Art Direction, Best Song Score and Best Costume Design. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Tom Sawyer

½

Between a 6/10 and 7/10, the result is a diverting film which will please Twain fans (though not purists) and which, if nothing else, captures the essence of his tale.

This is an old one alot of people haven't seen. It stars Johnny Whitaker as Tom, Jodie Foster as Becky, Jeff East(Superman, teenager) as Huck.
