TOM SAWYER - A Musical Adaptation of Mark Twain's Boyhood Tale ~ SPECIAL WIDESCREEN ROADSHOW EDITION ~ Johnny Whitaker, Celeste Holm, Jodie Foster, Jeff East


Tom Sawyer is a 1973 American musical film adaptation of the Mark Twain boyhood adventure story, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer .

Note: This is a rare version of this musical adaptation of a childhood classic. In addition to the wonderful score by the Sherman Brothers ( Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Charlotte's Web and The Aristocats), this DVD is presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and it includes the Overture and Exit music which was included in the original Roadshow edition of the film. There was no Intermission music as the film was not long enough to justify an intermission. (A)

Tom Sawyer and his pal Huckleberry Finn have great adventures on the Mississippi River, pretending to be pirates, attending their own funeral, and witnessing a murder.

The movie was produced by Reader's Digest. The film's screenplay and songs were written by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman who would go on to provide more award-winning music for the sequel Huckleberry Finn.
