Take an adventurous trip down the Mississippi River - and into your own imagination - with this heartwarming musical rendition of an American Classic.
As Tom and Becky, Johnny Whitaker(Jody of TV's Family Affair) and a young Jodie Foster (in one of her earliest screen appearances) lead the way through a wildly inventive series of tall tales and narrow escapes. Tom's long-suffering Aunt Polly (Celeste Holm) Does her best to raise her unruly nephew, all the while enduring one prank after another. But when Tom's witness to a ghastly crime, he is thrust into a new kind of adventure - one that places him in a great deal of danger and forces him to leave his fishing poles and carefree days far behind.
Nominated for four Academy Awards and featuring the memorable characters of Muff Potter and the Mischievous Huckleberry Finn.
Fun movie for the whole family. My Dad said some of the pranks in this movie were played on school teachers when he was a child, but he wasn't one of them putting worms, toads and snakes in the teacher's desk or his mother's cupboards, he left all that to his older brothers and played the good little baby of the family role.
My brother loved the pranks and the tall tales. He's even considering reading the book just to see if there's anything in it that's not in the movie :)
