Tom Sawyer is a 1973 American musical film adaptation of Mark Twain's 1876 boyhood adventure story The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Directed by Don Taylor, the film stars Johnny Whitaker as the title character, Jodie Foster as Becky Thatcher, Jeff East as Huckleberry Finn, and Ho–Chunk tribesman Kunu Hank portrayed Injun Joe. The film was produced by Reader's Digest in collaboration with Arthur P. Jacobs who was best known for producing the Planet of the Apes films. The film's screenplay and songs were written by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman, who would go on to provide award–winning music for the film's 1974 sequel Huckleberry Finn. At the 46th Academy Awards, the film received three nominations – Best Original Score, Best Production Design and Best Costume Design, but failed to win any. ()
