The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn (1960) - Eddie Hodges DVD
The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn (1960)
Mark Twain's then, now and forever classic about Huck Finn's runaway journey down the Mississippi and into manhood enjoys one of its best screen adaptations here. Michael Curtiz, legendary director of Casablanca and some 170 more films, pilots this all-family movie whose stars include 1960s era child actor Eddie Hodges (as irrepressible Huck) and savvy veterans Tony Randall (as snake-oil smooth King), Andy Devine (as a circus huckster) and Buster Keaton as a circus sideman). And Archie Moore, long time light-heavyweight boxing champ who holds the record for most career knockouts, scores an acting KO as Jim, the fugitive slave who's Huck's rafting companion... and this appealing film's timeless conscience.
