2. Production

This is an adaptation of the classic novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain and is a follow-up to Tom Sawyer 1930. Omitting the entire issue of whether or not Huck ought to turn the slave Jim back in after Jim escapes his owners, it concentrated mostly on the comedy in the novel, and turned Jim into the typical comic "darkie" stereotype of that era.

The film was made as a followup to Paramounts Tom Sawyer, which had been released a year earlier with substantially the same cast and became the top-grossing film of 1930.

However, as happened with Tom Sawyer, the 1931 Huckleberry Finn was superseded only eight years later by MGMs far more faithful The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, starring Mickey Rooney as Huck, Rex Ingram as Jim, Walter Connolly as the King, and William Frawley as the Duke.
