HUCKLEBERRY FINN (Television Release USA 1975)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Huckleberry Finn—great film that taps into the artistic talents of the Ron, Clint, Rance, and Jean Howard family—tells the classic Mark Twain story of Huckleberry Finn. Nothing lacking here. It’s good, sound entertainment that allows a great peek into United States’ history by means of author Mark Twain’s eyes. Watch for Jack Elam and Don Most who round out the cast to perfection.

Storyline

Huckleberry Finn decides to help a runaway slave escape to Illinois.
