Victor Kilian is a superbly terrifying Pap. The rest of the cast excellent. All the quibbling about not following the book is pointless. No movie follows any book verbatim its impossible. This is an excellent adaptation of the book with a no -holds barred examination of the shameful horror that was slavery in the U.S. Mickey Rooney is perfectly cast as Huck. He was also perfectly cast as Puck a few years earlier. The director Rickie Thorpe is a veteran of the Tarzan movies and handles the action sequences and mighty Mississippi parts very adeptly.Mickey Rooney is perfectly cast as Huck. He was also perfectly cast as Puck
