The riverboat used in the first scene is the one which was especially built for MGM's 1951 Technicolor remake of Show Boat (1951) and originally used in that film. It was also used in the films Raintree County (1957) and Advance to the Rear (1964). See more »
At the end of the movie when Huck gets back to the raft after speaking to Jim for the last time, the raft is tied to the pier with rope. Huck didn't tie the raft to the pier when he jumped off the raft to go to Jim. See more »
I had the pleasure of watching the final scene of this film being shot back in 1959. I was six years old and witnessing this began my lifelong love for the movies. When the film arrived in our city, I was struck by Jerome Morross' incredible music score, which completely captured the sense of adventure, wonder and beauty of life on the Mississippi River and rural Missouri. The film itself is robust, dramatic and filled with Mark Twain's colorful, classic words. The cast is perfect and Michael Curtiz' direction keeps the action flowing. This is a wonderful film for all ages.
