Holmes-- Young SherlockHolmes, I'm sorry.

I always get thosetwo guys mixed up.

I'm saying tomyself why don't we

have more movies likethat in this country.

I think I figured it out.

We don't have as much literatureto draw on the same way

that the British do.

But Do have some classic piecesof literature of our own.

What I wanted to dowas find a great piece

of American literature,set it to modern day film,

using some of favorite actors.

This is what I came up with.

Here we go.

the motion picture,"starring Robert

De Niro as Huckleberry Finn.
