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.
Legendary cinematographer James Wong Howe claimed he was banned from using Technicolor because of a bad rapport he had with that company during the making of this movie. He did not use color again until 1949.
