This is a sprightly account of the adventures of Mark Twain's rural American boy which follows Huck Finn (Eddie Hodges) and the slave Jim (Archie Moore) as they travel down the Mississippi on a raft in the mid-1800s. Along the way they are reluctantly drawn into the schemes of a pair of

con men (Tony Randall and Mickey Shaughnessy), find work on a riverboat, and join the circus. Though it is not entirely faithful to the book (the riverboat and circus scenes have been added), this is nonetheless a well-crafted film featuring strong performances from Randall, former middleweight

boxing champion Moore, and a host of beloved character actors, with rich photography that beautifully captures authentic Mississippi River locations. This was Hollywood's second attempt to film the Huck Finn story; Mickey Rooney had played the title role in 1939's HUCKLEBERRY FINN.
