Huckleberry Finn

Disappointingly routine follow up to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, prosaically shot (in black-and-white) with none of the care lavished on the earlier film, despite extensive use oflocations. With the characters stuck in cliché (Connolly and Frawley labouring for comic effect as the riverboat conmen, Ingram in the Uncle Tom bit as the runaway slave), the leisurely adventures - though entertaining enough, thanks largely to a subdued and admirable Rooney - seem to roll by as sluggishly as ol' man river.
