About

Samuel Clemens, or Mark Twain, is one of America's most widely known, yet least understood authors. This film focuses on the tragedy or folly that often provoked Twain's humor, while never forgetting the laughter, his device for getting and holding our attention. Authentic dialogue and dramatized incidents from his life and his fiction help illustrate the deep pessimism that formed a counterpoint to Twain's celebrated humor.
