Considered the funniest man of his time, Mark Twain was a critic of human nature who used his humor to attack hypocrisy, greed, and racism. As America's best-loved author, he created some of its most memorable characters and quoted sayings. Director Ken Burns digs beneath the legend to discover the true Twain and reveals his extraordinary life, filled with adventure and literary pursuit, incredible success and defeat, comedy, and tragedy.

I first viewed at the Mark Twain Museum in Hannibal and was hooked---couldn't continue the tour---wanted to see the whole video , then realized how long it was---had to have it for my library---very pleased.

The best Humorist you'll ever read.

Comments about PBS Mark Twain - A Film By Ken Burns DVD:

One of the first books I read as a child was Huckleberry Finn. After that I was hooked and eagerly read anything I could find by Twain. As a child I related to the things Twain's young characters did, and as an Adult I thoroughly love his humor and Social Commentary. I have probably hundreds, if not thousands, of books on my shelves, but there'll always be room for Twain.

Before his time.

Comments about PBS Mark Twain - A Film By Ken Burns DVD:

I watch this fine film by Ken Burns and the thought keeps running through my mind is "Mark Twain was a genius born too soon" I say this after I catch myself thinking what he would have said about some of todays happenings. forinstance, Nixon, Agnew, LBJ, Jimmy Carter and on and on. The trouble with Sam Clements, if there is one, is how does one classify him? Humorist? Certainly. Political Observer and commentator? Certainly. Writer? ABSOLUTELY. I guess the best I can do is A GENIUS BEFORE HIS TIME!
