The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn 1939
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ★★★ 1939
Mark Twain's classic story about a boy who runs away and travels down the Mississippi on a raft, accompanied by a runaway slave, is done over in MGM-style. Rooney is understated as Huck (quite a feat), while the production occasionally floats aimlessly down the Mississippi. An entertaining follow-up to “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.” 89m/B VHS . Mickey Rooney, Lynne Carver, Rex Ingram, William Frawley, Walter Connolly; D: Richard Thorpe.
