Tom Sawyer, Detective

Country: USA

Genre: Adventure, Drama, Mystery



Tom Sawyer (Billy Cook) and Huckleberry Finn (Donald O'Connor) help an Arkansas preacher who is falsely accused of murder.


  • Based on the 1896 novel of the same name by American writer Mark Twain (1835-1910)
  • The movie Profile picture on this page shows the front cover of a 1938 pressbook that was printed for this movie. Despite the accompanying words, the boy shown on the cover is Donald O'Connor as Huck Finn, and not Billy Cook as Tom Sawyer! Either the compilers of the pressbook were confused, or maybe they just preferred this image and hoped no one would notice the error.
