Synopsis by C. Dwayne Smith
What better way to celebrate the life of such a piece of Americana than with song? Brought to home video by Monterey Media, Mark Twain: A Musical Biography is a tribute to the man who gave us such classics as Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Directed by Clark Santee and Dennis Rosa, this 88-minute, colorful extravaganza stars actor William Perley as the literary patriarch of the Mississippi. From his humble beginnings in small-town Missouri to his meteoric rise to become the foremost American-born author and a world-class humorist, this tape is a unique approach to a well-documented life. Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens and lived from 1835-1910.
