Huck and Tom is an American drama film directed by William Desmond Taylor and released in 1918. The scenario by Julia Crawford Ivers is derived from the novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. Robert Gordon and Jack Pickford reprise the title roles from the 1917 version of Tom Sawyer, a successful adaptation also directed by Taylor.



Upon its March 1918 release, Huck and Tom received lukewarm reviews. Variety called it "acceptable" and Photoplay described it as "not so fascinating, being an unbelievable mixture of boyish fancy and Brady melodrama."[1]
