I'm giving this video 4 stars although it should have all five because it is by far the very best version of Twain's "Huckleberry Finn" thus far dramatized. UNFORTUNATELY, the powers that be decided NOT to put the ENTIRE 240 minute show on tape so we now have a much (very, very much!) condensed edition of this fine PBS production. Doing this editing does a disservice to Mark Twain's great story, also a disservice to all the fine actors involved, and to the screenwriter who did a remarkable job of making this sprawling book really work as a movie. So, how about bringing out the ENTIRE 240 minute production, let's say on DVD, and maybe with some commentary on Twain, the book, etc. This is really a wonderful production and deserves a better chance on video! DVD the entire show. I'd be willing to pay for it and I'm sure others who are familiar with this production would also purchase it. This is the ONLY movie of "Huckleberry Finn" that comes even close to the book's style and feeling (for example, NO cutesy stuff, NO dumb and misplaced songs), just straightforward storytelling, excellent acting and well done from start to finish. Again, DVD please, and please: the WHOLE 240 minutes!

Of all the many movie versions of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", this PBS adaptation is the best. It remains true to Twain's story, though does not incorporate the entire book, for time constraint I suppose. However, enough of the book has been adapted to give the viewer a very good idea of what the book is all about. Patrick Day is by far the best of all the Huck Finn's I have seen, thus far. The actor who portrays Jim is outstanding; as is the acting from the Duke and the King. Also, the scenery is breathtaking. It is truly a joy to watch this movie version of Huck Finn, though apparantly it has been edited, and some of it has been taken out. If you can, buy the version that has the complete four hours - I gauruntee you will not be sorry. I strongly recommend this movie for everyone.

When this ran on PBS in 1985, I video taped the entire broadcast over four nights. Essentially, the only differences between the 240 minute version and the 213 minute version, are station breaks with members
of the cast making appearances asking for financial support for local PBS stations, and beginning and ending credits. The 213 minutes on this DVD is the full dramatic performance. I suspect it would, if
rated, probably be PG . No, it is not suitable as entertainment for preteens, but then neither is Twain's novel. What it is, however, is a magnificent piece of cinematic art, which, coincidentally, happens to follow Twain's story quite faithfully.

This is by far the best version of Huckleberry Finn. I've tried for the past 5 months to find this in DVD format in it's 214 minute glory, and finally have found it from Monterey Media. This version holds true to the book in it's unedited version and surpasses any other Huck Finn version in existance. I wish that the now defunct American Playhouse would have made Tom Sawyer to compliment this video. Maybe one day someone will.

Content of this film is better than any other Huck Finn version. Aside from just a few scenes, the film is really true to the original text novel. The only thing that is a pain is that the dvd has no chapter or scene separations. Showing it to high school classes is difficult due to the constant rewinding and fast forwarding to find where we left off.

How I missed this in 1985, I'll never know! It was a TV miniseries, filmed in Kentucky and shown on PBS. A shortened version was aired on a cable channel recently and I caught the last half of it, checked the Internet and was amazed to find it available in its full length on DVD.

For anyone who hasn't seen it, this is the only film version of Mark Twain's classic that is true to the book, and it requires the production's full 3 hours and 33 minutes to accomplish this admirable task. The actors were well chosen, with the possible exception of Tom Sawyer, who didn't seen "right" to me. Never mind, he's only a bit player in Huck's story, and the rest of the principals do a fine job. Patrick Day is especially appealing in the title role. All the background, the land and water, the buildings, boats, and townspeople are exactly as you've seen them in your mind's eye when you read the book. I was amazed by this movie's completeness and its fidelity to Twain's work.

If you have seen this production on TV you'll find this DVD quite acceptable though not real sharp. I noticed some grain in dark areas and a bit of edge ghosting in a few contrasty scenes. The aspect ratio is standard TV, 1.33:1. The sound is fine, although I had to turn my set's volume up.

There is so much to see and discover in this masterpiece, I'm sure that I'll watch it again and again and find something new to delight me every time. I could not recommend it more enthusiastically. All other versions of Huckleberry Finn pale to the ridiculous by comparison.

My favorite version of Huck Finn will probably always be the Elijah Wood version. It took the original story and sped it up. It's non-stop adventure, with everything else you want from the story included as well. This version however, is not far behind while at the same time being very true to the book. Now the version you see here is the one I saw, I rented it just last night. But there is a version twice as long that is also available here on Amazon. The price is ridiculous since it is NOT a DVD, but rather two tapes, but I want it anyway! I can only assume that it includes everything this one left out, though this version is still fine in a pinch! Even with half of it's running time cut out it's the second best version of Huck Finn I've seen! The casting is great! Only exception is Tom. I mean, he wasn't bad, but didn't look quite as roguish as you'd expect. For a great Tom see Rascals and Robbers. Some of the acting is a little odd, and some is great! And I have to comment on the kid who plays Huck, a grown man by now I'm sure. He's the PERFECT Huck, and would have also played a perfect Young Indiana Jones had he had the chance! I mean he has the look and the act. There's one seen where you totally see his Harrison Fordishness come out at the end as he snaps at Tom and breaks down a door to free Jim! You fellow Tom and Huck fans, be sure to get this one, the long version if you can afford it, and remember to look for what I said, his extreme Indiana Jonesishness. Indy fans like me, though we loved Flannery's Indy, will weep at the fact that this kid didn't have his turn at the hat!
