Adventures of Hucklebery Finn (1920): Preserved by National Film Foundation

The National Film Preservation Foundation selected yesterday the celebrated 1920 adaptation of Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” as the 1,000th film to be saved under the program.

The classic film is one of the few complete features to survive from director William Desmond Taylor.

“The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” will be preserved by George Eastman House from a 35mm color tinted nitrate print, which was originally found in Denmark.
