Watch Huckleberry Finn

"The Greatest Of All American Adventure Stories."

This 1974 version of Huckleberry Finn is a musical adaptation of Mark Twain's classic novel set in 1885 called The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. In this version, Huckleberry Finn is played by Jeff East and Jim is played by Paul Winfield. The film was released as a follow up to the highly successful 1973 film Tom Sawyer adapted from Mark Twain's novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Huckleberry Finn continues the story of Tom Sawyer and includes some of the same characters.

Huckleberry Finn follows the adventures of a young orphaned boy named Huckleberry Finn. Huckleberry Finn grew up in Missouri with a kind widow and her sister who decided to take him in when Huck's mother died and his father abandoned him.

Huck lives comfortably with the widow and her sister, until one day when his violent father returns and decides he wants Huck back for himself. But Huck's father has not returned out of love for his son; he has heard a rumor about Huck finding a treasure. Huck is happy to see his father, but does not want to leave his home with the widow who has raised him.

Huck's father doesn't care what the boy wants. Huck's father takes the boy by force and leaves a note to the widow stating a ransom of one thousand dollars she must pay him if she wants the boy returned safely.

Huck's father takes him to his small cabin in the woods, where he makes the boy work and threatens him with violence. While his father is out hunting, Huck plots his escape. One day, Huck escapes to the nearby Mississippi river by faking his own death.

It is here that Huck meets a kind escaped slave named Jim, who invites Huck to travel with him up the Mississippi on his raft. This begins the adventures of Jim and Huckleberry Finn as Huck slowly journeys home.
