Mark Twain (film)
Mark Twain is a documentary film on the life of Mark Twain, also known as Samuel Clemens, produced by Ken Burns in 2001 which aired on Public Broadcasting System on January 14 and 15, 2002. Burns attempted to capture both the public and private persona of Mark Twain from his birth to his death. Some artistic license was taken, resulting in some historical inaccuracies and misrepresentations. The film was narrated by Keith David and the voice of Mark Twain was provided by Kevin Conway.
