One of Mark Twain's best-loved stories becomes a screen musical in this family-friendly adaptation. Mischievous Huckleberry Finn (Jeff East) is a 15-year-old boy who has long had a difficult relationship with his often violent father. When Dad tried to kidnap him, Huck decides to run away from home, and heads out of town on a raft. Huck is soon joined by Jim (Paul Winfield), a runaway slave who is no more eager to see his master than Huck is to see his father. As the two friends make their way down the Mississippi, they're faced with a variety of challenges and adventures, including a run-in with a pair of shabby but dignified actors, The King (Harvey Korman) and The Duke (David Wayne). Produced in association with Reader's Digest magazine, which in 1973, scored a box-office hit with a musical version of Twain's Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn featured original songs by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, who also wrote the songs for a handful of Disney hits, including Mary Poppins.

Sean S (mx) wrote: One of the wittiest horror films besides those in the Scream series, Cherry Falls creatively turns the concepts of the slasher genre on their head with a healthy dose of cynicism. Its "parents' misdeeds coming back to haunt their children" plot has been done before and its high school stereotypes help firmly ground the film in its parent genre, however, but the film utilises both in unusual ways and undermines some typical expectations. Truly, the only letdown here is the film flying under the radar of most film fans.

Michael G (gb) wrote: Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier and Louis Armstrong. Score by Duke Ellington, directed by Martin Ritt. Jazz musicians in Paris. This movie sounds amazing and should be astonishing, right? The problem is that its not. The fifth of the movie that actually has to do with jazz gets farted on by how dislikable Newman's character is or how little you care about Joanne Woodward's character. The whole Poitier contrived social consciousness thing where he walked around with Diahann Carrol for half the movie was dull. Not to mention the nonsensical yet predictable ending. But for as much as I bitch about this movie the scenery and photography were great as was any scene with Armstrong.

This one's alright w/ a returning Dean Jones & benefits from having Don Knotts as his sidekick. Herbie competes in the Tour De France & falls in love w/ the #7 car who is driven by a female who thinks Jones is out to sabotage her because Herbie gets a mind of his own whenever he sees her. In the mean time he gets caught up in a diamond heist where the crooks hide the jewel in his gas tank. It's all harmless Disney fun that is just surreal if you stop to think about. Don't. Best to just turn your brain off & be brought back to much simpler times (if you can stick w/ its length)
