Storyline

A year after their former exploits, Tom Sawyer's puppy love of Becky Thatcher keeps him home while Huck Finn, chafing under "civilizing" influences like school and shoes, plans to run away. His scapegrace, abusive father intervenes; Tom and black Jim help him escape; and (departing from the novel) all three raft down the Mississippi, where they're joined by two likable rogues and meet pretty orphans Ella and Mary Jane. The latter may change Huck's mind about girls... Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Interesting
24 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I ordered this finding it on e-bay. I went to college in Hannibal, Missouri so anything related to Mark Twain tweaks my interest. I have the 1930 Tom Sawyer, so finding this 1931 sequel is a real find. Yes it is a early talkie. And Tom on the raft with Huck and Jim is not from Twain, but Tom always wanting to play pirates makes the story fun.

I recommend this version only if one is attempting to add to their collection. If you really want to see a great version, the 1920 version- silent, is far superior.

I realize there has been several versions of this classic. Again I it was fun, with Tom along for the ride.
