Tom Sawyer, Detective (1938) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Billy Cook, Donald O'Connor, Porter Hall, Phil Warren, Janet Waldo

Directed by Louis King



Print: black/white

Runtime: 68 min.

Genre: mystery

Print Quality: B



Even geniuses have to eat, and when Mark Twain was offered a substantial sum of money

to slap together a quickie sequel to his classic novel Tom Sawyer, he responded with the

pulpish but entertaining Tom Sawyer, Detective. Billy Cook is sublimely cast as Tom, while

Donald O'Connor steals the film in the more colorful role of Huckleberry Finn. When local

deacon Uncle Silas (Porter Hall) is accused of murder, Tom and Huck endeavor to prove his

innocence by solving the mystery themselves. Complicating matters is the fact that the

"dead man" (William Haade) is seen roaming around very much alive. The film's highlight is

a spooky episode in a mausoleum, with our intrepid heroes working overtime to convince

each other that they ain't really scared. Janet Waldo, later one of the most versatile

voiceover actresses in the business, plays Tom's puppy-love interest Ruth Phelps.
