The Adventures of Mark Twain

Time Out says

Some soggy moments, but on the whole one of the best of the Warner biopics: solidly stylish, well acted, and with some superb camerawork from Sol Polito (especially in the riverboat sequences). It's romanticised, of course, but reasonably accurate since Twain's career (as printer, river pilot, prospector, newspaper editor, bankrupt and international lecture tourist, among other things) was colourful enough to satisfy even Hollywood. Better when it's lighthearted (the delightful jumping-frog sequence) than when it's solemn (Twain's encounter with the assembled lions of American literature).
