Huckleberry Finn (1974)


MGM musical version
-Year: 1974
-Year in film: ~1800s
-Country: USA
-Who in bibs: Huck 16 ys
-Available on DVD: yes
-I own: no
-Bib occurence: often ?
-Rating:  5/10
-Rating: *****
-Comment: Jeff East (pictured) in worn blue jeans and brown bibs. Similar to musical Tom Sawyer (1973), which is at the beginning of the trailer, see also that entry, where Jeff East also starred next to Johnny Whitaker as Tom Sawyer. I don't remember this film, probably the film Tom Sawyer is better and more famous. Blue bibs on the movie poster looks quite good while sitting, but I assume there are more scenes in brown bibs. Better than black&white versions, but I think there are better films. There are many Tom & Huck films. Musicals are also not the taste for everyone. Rating 5 for now. Film aka "Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn: A Musical Adaptation".
