The scene where Clemens receives an honorary degree from Oxford University in 1907 was the recreation of an event that C. Aubrey Smith, who plays the Oxford Chancellor, actually witnessed. See more »
In the young Sam's first steerage of a steamboat, he is told to avoid trees which we see are off the port (left) side but, when the scene cuts to the over-the-shoulder shot of Sam, the trees are on the starboard (right) side. He then turns the wheel to the right (starboard) which should crash the boat directly into the trees. But, when it cuts back to the full shot of the vessel, the ship is successfully turning away from the trees which again are on the port side. See more »

In the Adventures of Mark Twain, Frederick March portrays the author as Sam Clemmons himself would approve. This film is the most true to life account of Clemmons life as any film I have seen on the author. It not only lets the viewer see the humorous side of Twain, but shows the desperate and dark sides as well. This is a film that every Twain "buff" should view!
