I’d like to find a videotape of a movie that was shown on TV in the 1970s on Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. It was shown before the 1973 film was released. There were two Tom Sawyer movies made in 1973. The video you probably want is “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.” It stars Vic Morrow as Injun Joe and features Jane Wyatt and Buddy Ebsen. A film called “Tom Sawyer,” a musical adaptation, also was made in 1973. It stars Jodie Foster, Celeste Holm and Warren Oates. To order from Movies Unlimited, call 1-800-4-MOVIES (466-8437).
