Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Mark Twain: Well I found out what a mine is anyway. It's a hole in the ground with a darn fool at the end of it.

A great biography
5 August 1998 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

Frederic March has a wonderful time playing the great author with all his humor and wisdom. This film is often overlooked, but it is one of the great bio-flicks. The settings, cast, Max Steiner score, and magic of the adventures add up to a funny and touching movie.

With a film like this available, I can report that the rumors of Mark Twain's death are indeed exaggerated.
