The real Mark Twain, Samuel L. Clemens, appeared in only one film in his lifetime, shortly before his death: a short silent movie of him walking around his Stormfield home, photographed by Thomas Edison's Edison film compnay in 1909. But since then, Mark Twain has been on television dozens of times - immortilized, and impersonated, by a frankly startling array of actors on the small screen.
