The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the Great American Novel. And Mickey Rooney is the great screen Huck Finn, the high-spirited heart of this story of Huck, a boy running from civilization, and Jim (Rex Ingram), a man running from slavery. Together, they raft down the Mississippi into breathtaking adventure, pratfalling comedy and a soaring quest for liberty. Your favorite Huckleberry moments are here: skipping school to go fishin’, escaping from his vicious Pap, meeting Jim on Jackson Island, donning a dress and bonnet to sneak into town, sharing the raft with comic conmen (veteran actors Walter Connolly and William Frawley) who call themselves the King and the Duke. Come aboard if’n you have a yen for “borrowed” dinner fixin’s and freedom! 1939 – BW – 92 Minutes.
