This 1973 made-for-TV version of the Mark Twain classic features the performances of Jane Wyatt, Buddy Ebsen, Vic
Morrow and John McGiver. A horribly produced and short feature, it is very obvious that all the outdoor night scenes
were shot in broad daylight and then darkened later. It's laughable. Availability was irregular, but generally not
to hard to find during the title's life.
There are two distinct frame counts for side 1. The difference is the encoding of frame 1. Some copies have frame 1
during the DiscoVision intro, while others begin frame 1 after the Universal logo. Four of the copies examined
have the same Battlestar Galactica dead side, from the same defective pressing run.
Most copies of side 2 have been 20 Frame Skip. Some copies of side
3 have 10,000 Frame Shift.
Tom Sawyer was never reissued on LaserDisc.
