Synopsis

This Mark Twain classic, a film perennial, retells the familiar tale of several young friends on an adventurous summer in the sleepy Mississippi River town of Hannibal, Missouri. A theatrical "Tom Sawyer," musicalized, also was released in 1973, some weeks after the TV version which, technically, was a remake of the 1938 movie (before that, it had been filmed in 1917 and 1930).
