Anthony Michael Hall,
The adventure unfolds as Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn - Tom's friend from the streets - witness a murder in the graveyard. Tom and Huck flee to Jackson Island and make a pact never to tell anyone about the incident. However, when the good-natured Muff Potter, who has been blamed for the murder is sentenced to death by hanging, Tom breaks his promise and returns to exonerate Muff Potter. In jun Joe, the actual murderer, makes a hasty exit from the courtroom during the trial. A short time later, Tom and Huck find references to a treasure and have to face In jun Joe again.Written by
When Tom wakes up the first morning after he and Huck reach Jackson Island, he sees a fox crossing a wide, fast flowing stream with a rocky bottom. The narrator has described Jackson Island as an "uninhabited thin and woodsy piece of free floating land." The island certainly wouldn't be big enough to support such a stream and the clear water certainly wouldn't be coming from the muddy Mississippi. The shot is stock or second unit footage. See more »
