Tom Sawyer, Detective is one of the early Donald O'Connor movies I'm reviewing on this site
In chronological order, this is the first of several Donald O'Connor movies I'm reviewing on this site. He plays Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer's friend who's played by Billy Cook. O'Connor gets whatever laughs here when spitting on a fish or having to deal with his pet turtle. Also, he prays for rain then thinks the Lord overdid it when it becomes a storm! There's a case involving diamonds, twin brothers, and who's the bad guys and the good ones. I'll just now say this was quite a funny and dramatic movie based on a book by Mark Twain. So on that note, I recommend Tom Sawyer, Detective. P.S. One of the players is Janet Waldo-best known to me as the voice of teen Judy Jetson on "The Jetsons". She must have been in about her real teens at this time.
