Mark Twain is a documentary directed by Ken Burns and written by Geoffrey C. Ward and Dayton Duncan. In this excellent documentary, we follow Samuel Clemens from his humble beginnings in the backwoods of Missouri to his rise to fame as Mark Twain. He was considered the funniest man of his time; however, his stance on human nature, racism, labor, and imperialism made him one of the most acclaimed writers of his time. In the documentary, we get to know Mark Twain, the public figure, and Mark Twain, the husband, and father.
