Tom Sawyer / Huckleberry Finn (Blu-ray)

We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles.
Sibling songwriting duo Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman (the men responsible for the immortal Mary Poppins) bring us a pair of musical Mark Twain adaptations: Tom Sawyer (1973), a light-hearted look at life along the Mississippi, and the more serious Huckleberry Finn (1974), which touches (more lightly here, of course, than in the original) on the subject of race in America.  Acting honors in Tom Sawyer go to vets Celeste Holm and Warren Oates, and to little Johnny Whitaker and a very young Jodie Foster; in Huckleberry Finn, adolescent Jeff East is paired with the great Paul Winfield.
