-Comment: Charles Taylor (pictured) in worn (maybe brown) bibs in episode 2.1. Originally I searched for Huck Finn (1939) and thought this might be in PD and "only" found this later film. Available free for stream or download. At least the streaming version has quite bad image quality. 1 hour including some breaks for presentation. Series aka Climax Mystery Theater. I haven't seen this complete film yet. But I like Huck Finn. Synonymous for a boy's adventure, including barefeet, fishing, smoking, pranks, rafting and dressing like a girl. At least 2 other Huck entries follows. I thought most Huck films have no bibs (except Huckleberry Finn and His Friends (1979) and Huck & the King of Hearts), but I mostly checked Tom Sawyer films with in fact only the 1973 version with bibs (see those entries).
