“[Tom Sawyer is] an unpretentious and cheerful movie that uses its music well…very fetching…the best thing in its line since Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
– Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“[Huckleberry Finn’s] Paul Winfield merits praise for a strong, dignified performance as Jim…Harvey Korman as the King and David Wayne as the Duke [are] an irresistible pair of rogues.”
– Lawrence Van Gelder, The New York Times

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.
