Product Description:

After accidentally witnessing a murder, Tom and his pals Huck and Joe run away to become pirates, swearing to never reveal their secret. But when a man is wrongfully accused of the deed, they know they've got to come forward with the truth. A faithful adaptation of the Twain novel, with the exception of Jim's character alteration (from a man to boy). David O. Selznick produces, and William Cameron Menzies contributes wonderful Art Direction.

Production Notes:

  • One of four versions of TOM SAWYER. The previous adaptation was filmed in 1930, and two others were done in 1973.
  • Original running time for the film was 93 minutes; some video versions have been cut to 77.
  • Film shot in Technicolor.
  • Lyle Wheeler's art direction earned him a nomination for an Academy Award for Interior Design.
    1938 was a major year for juvenilia in film: that year's Academy Awards honored Walt Disney for SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (with a special statuette in which Oscar was surrounded by the dwarfs, presented by child star Shirley Temple), and the young Mickey Rooney and Deanna Durbin both received special awards as juvenile players -- their statuettes were miniature.
