The Adventures of Tom Sawyer 07/28/18

KL Studio Classics

David O. Selznick’s ¬†Americana classic came together in the run-up period before Gone With the Wind, getting terrific results from early 3-strip Technicolor. They’re all here — Tom, Huck, Becky Thatcher, Aunt Polly, Muff Potter and Injun Joe — plus that prissy little SOB, Sid. The unforgettable cave sequence by William Cameron Menzies cinched the big GWTW gig for the world-class designer. Mark Twain’s tale is presented in two versions, the uncut original and a later reissue cut-down. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
