Last night was the 2nd time seeing this film. I first saw it when it was first released. A great film with a nice story line based on the book. Thanks TCM for showing it. It was just as good now as it was then!!
Watch It, First Class
- Jim Smith
Captivating movie with engaging performances by Hodges and Moore and others. Moore, one of the great boxers ever and long time light heavyweight champ, shines along with Huck. And a rarity, a musical background that does not diminish the plot, much.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1960)
- James Higgins
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.
A Breezy, Fun version of Classic literature

To bad we all had to suffer over-analyzing the book in high school. It wasn't until I watched this movie version of the tale for it all to come together. ATTENTION ENGLISH LITERATURE TEACHERS "HAVE YOUR STUDENTS WATCH THIS MOVIE FIRST, AND THEY WILL MORE THOROUGHLY ENJOY READING THE BOOK LATER!"
