Hal Holbrook is one of those actors that has that Southern charm so well ingrained that you can't help but enjoy watching him perform. I saw this one man show performed on television many years ago and thought at the time that it was brilliant. Twain was pure entertainment on stage, and Holbrook mimics the author with grand gestures and superb intonation. Mark Twain was such a remarkable man, that no single show like this could do him justice. He was a world traveller and brought his experiences to the American people in a way they could best absorb it - through humor. This is a splendid tribute to America's first great author.
