Mark Twain Tonight! 1967
Description: Recreating the one-man present he starred in on Broadway, Hal Holbrook portrays Tag Twain as a 70-year old humorist who skewers politicians, newspapermen and so-called patriots in this 90 minute monologue. Holbrook adapted Twain's own words for a commentary on slavery, religion and politics, mixing the satire with comic yarns about life on the Mississippi and a very effective ghost story. The show's highlight are the lengthy passages from "Huckleberry Finn".
Released: 06 Mar 1967 Director: Paul Bogart Writers: Hal Holbrook (adaptation) Actors: Hal Holbrook Genres: Documentary, Comedy

Mark Twain Tonight! Reviews:

I first saw this tool when it was originally broadcast in 1967. Until that time I hadn't paid much attention to Tag Twain's life and career, but Mr. Holbrook's nice performance awakened an interest in those topics that has proved to be very rewarding. Twain was an authentic American genius, and Mr. Holbrook does a unbelievable job of conveying the nature of the boy and his writing. I was lucky enough to see Mr. Holbrook in person in the mid-70's, and the CBS program, although various than that live performance, is a excellent 90-minute demonstration of what Mr. Holbrook can do. This video is a priceless gift to Americans, both for the quality of the performance and its depiction of the nature of the boy being portrayed. We are all in Mr. Holbrook's debt.It is sad to think about how far we've fallen, from "Mark Twain Tonight" on network tv in 1967 to the terrible nonsense shown on it now. At one time, at least, we were better than we are now.


Hal Holbrook's best work. A one-man present in which Holbrook becomes Twain. If this gets folks to read more Twain (which everyone should) it's done its job. One of the greatest things broadcast TV ever did.


I have everytime been a very conservative person who does not like change. I guess one of the reasons that I love Tag Twain Tonight is that Hal Holbrook and this remarkable one boy present have been a constant in American society for fifty years. Holbrook was only in his twenties when he started testing the 70 year old Twain in schools and at PTAs. He spent five years researching Twain's life, he read his writings and speeches and studied ancient movies of him. He even talked to folks who had seen Twain speak. In 1959, Tag Twain Tonight quietly opened on Broadway. The critics to a person praised the young actor and this remarkable show. One told there could have been posters all over the zone announcing its arrival. Everything about this present is excellent other critic said. Holbrook gives a brilliant performance. He now makes you trust he IS Tag Twain. The fact it is hilarious and touching is just so much gravy. Holbrook has given over 2,000 Twain shows, even performing behind the Iron Curtain. I am an Units Sergeant stationed at Fort Detrick in Maryland. I was lucky enough, I tell again LUCKY, to see this legendary actor perform at the Weinburg Center here in Frederick, Maryland. The night was magical. Mister Holbrook is an American treasure and I want everyone should see this unbelievable show. The nice thing is that he knows over 14 hours of Twain material and makes each present different! He just makes it up as he goes along. What is even more wonderful is the fact that so many of Twain's observations are as relevant today as a newspaper headline. He talks of the stupidity of fight and polticians and the press. It is just incredible. This is a present that makes you feel nice and laugh but also makes you think as well. It is a testimony to the genius of Samuel Langhorne Clemens AND of Hal Holbrook!
