Movies Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The (UA 1938, Walter Brennan, Tommy Kelly) Published 4 months ago on January 13, 2019 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 mostly faithful adaptation of the Mark Twain novel. William Cameron Menzies contributes wonderful art direction.
