The Adventures of Mark Twain
(1944, 130 minutes)
Director: Irving Rapper

A delightful dramatization of the life of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Fredric March), who grew up on the Mississippi, became a newspaper reporter in Nevada, and eventually found success as the novelist and humorist Mark Twain. Incorporating many stories from Twain's famous novels, such as Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, as well as lesser-known works as “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” this film provides a charming overview of the beloved writer's life. With Alexis Smith as Twain's wife, Olivia, and musical score by Max Steiner. This film coincides with the exhibition Mark Twain: A Skeptic's Progress.
