Tom Sawyer (1973 TV movie)

10 May


Josh Albee as Tom Sawyer
Year: 1973
Year in film: ~1850s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boy ~11
Available on DVD: VHS only?
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: One unknown boy in baggy cream or light beige bibs painting the fence at the beginning. Bib at high position. I only noticed this brief scene.

This is a lesser known movie not to be confused with the famous other 1973 version starring Johnny Whitaker rating 6.

After posting a recently aired Gunsmoke episode with him and Ike Eisenmann (Western blog rating 6) I also found this one rather by coincidence. Josh Albee also starred in the western Jeremiah Johnson , rating 3.

Not bad, but rating 5-6 only, as this is a brief scene.

Produced by Hal Roach and Universal. Directed by James Neilson “Bonanza”. Filmed in Canada, so maybe partly Canadian (supporting) actors.
