how Jean Gros the versatile Frenchman ap proached tha Mark Twain estate four years asb to obtain the right to use Mark Twains two masterpieces be lieving thatthese books contained the finest possible material for a true American puppet play It was only after the estate was convinced that this humorous and charming material would not be mal treated that permission was given Mr Gros lo adapt a play and write ap propriato music and after a years time was devoted In picking out the best bits and making puppets that would radiate the mood ot the words the play was finally put into re hearsal Whila It was believed that Huck Finn would meet with an enthusiastic response it was never expected that the success would be so complete Huck has now appeared on the stage in movies in the comic sections
