Removing from article
Moving this here from the article:
- In this version, Huck is portrayed as longing for adventure downriver and wary of his drunken "Pap". Pap shows up at the house of the widow who's taking care of Huck demanding $500 and suggesting the widow sell Jim for it. The next day, in Pap's cabin Huck crowns his father with a jug to avoid a beating and fakes his own death to cover his escape. Meanwhile, Jim decides to run away, and Huck and Jim set out downwriver on a raft.
- At their first stop downriver, they try to steal a chicken and briefly encounter men involved in a feud. Returning to their raft, now occupied by two con men, they reluctantly join up with them: the Duke of Bilgewater and the lost Dauphin.
Lacking any real detail, these plot elements are indistinguishable from similar plot elements in every film adaptation of the book and the book itself. The opening phrase, "In this version", suggests some sort of distinction is being made from other versions of the story, but the section totally fails to make any such distinction. I see no value to describing the plot in vague terms that are indistinguishable from the summary given in the article on the novel itself. The only reason I moved it here instead of deleting it outright was that it might serve as the basis of making an actual distinction between the plot of this adaptation and the original novel, or at least it might save some typing. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:53, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
