DON'T MISS OWNING THIS 4-STAR 1938 CLASSIC!
December 9, 2017
DON'T MISS THIS BELOVED FILM VERSION FROM 1938 IN TECHNICOLOR! This is THE ONLY VERSION of TOM SAWYER YOU WILL EVER WANT TO SEE!. A MOST OUTSTANDING CAST ASSEMBLED HERE COULD NEVER BE TOPPED FOR IT'S CHOICE OF FOLKS PLAYING THESE BELOVED CHARACTERS AND FITTING THOSE ROLES LIKE GLOVES! IF YOU GREW UP WITH THIS FILM AS I DID, YOU WILL LOVE ADDING THIS TO YOUR COLLECTION made by a film master David O. SELZNICK who would make "GONE WITH THE WIND" the following year. This is SUCH A GREAT FILM, AND IT NEEDS A MAJOR RESTORATION RELEASE... BUT UNTIL THEN, THIS VERY GOOD TRANSFER WILL DO.! BELIEVE ME - IF YOU LIKE THIS FILM , YOU WILL WANT TO WATCH IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. A FLAWLESSLY MADE AMERICAN FILM CLASSIC THAT MATCHES ALL OF THE 'AMERICANA EXPERIENCE' THE1800'S, PROBABLY BETTER THAN ANYTHING--THEN --OR NOW. Extremely sentimental, spirit-warming, hilarious and exciting. Once you've experienced THIS VERSION of "THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER", you will cheerfully never forget it.! (There is another company who has also released this film on DVD, with two other children's films, which are forgettable and not to be in any way connected with it's main attraction).
