Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
This version of the Twain classic covers every episode in the original novel. It opens in 1844, with Huck being kidnapped from the home of the Widow Douglas by his brutal, drink-sodden Pap. Huck escapes by faking his own death and rafting down the river with escaped slave Jim. In Part two an abolitionist is lynched; part three recounts the Shepardson/Grangerford feud; and part four culminates with the chicanery of the King and the Duke and the capture of Jim.

A sprawling adaptation for television with a fine performance from Patrick Day as Huckleberry. Patrick is the right age to play Huck appearing a little older than Tom Sawyer (Eugene Oakes). Also of note was good looking Jack Reidelberger as Buck Grangerford, a young tragedy of the family feud. At three and a half hours long this version is a feast of sheer indulgence for the boy film appreciator.
My Movie Rating: 7 / 10
The most complete adaptation of the original artwork by Mark Twain. The movie sticks to the novel painstakingly (as Twain would have said). There's only the scene with the houseboat missing I think, where Jim realized the dead corpse inside being Huck's father, and also the scene where the duke and the king fool the family by pretending being the English relatives of a dead man is left out, if my memory doesn't fool me. The two boys, especially Patrick Day as Huck, are doing a wonderful job as they revive two of the most famous characters in literature.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
