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 »

I have always admired Fredric March as an actor. This roll showed his great versatility. The writing and editing of Mark Twain's life into this movie makes it one of the finest biographical movies of all time. The soliloquy by the chancellor of Oxford, played by C. Abrey Smith, encapsulates the life of Twain, better than any I've heard or read since. This movie is a must for any student of American literature.
