Plot
Television history was made on March 6, 1967 when an audience of over 30 million viewers tuned in to watch the first television broadcast of Hal Holbrook's landmark one-man show, Mark Twain Tonight! The 90-minute special was a tour de force, and was acclaimed as one of the high points in television history.

Most startling is the freshness of Twain's stinging commentary on politics, the art of lying, religion, patriotism, slavery, and Man's notion that he is the Creator's pet. Holbrook seems to improvise his way through the gold mine of Twain's writing, stitching it together from many sources, allowing us to see into the heart and soul of the great humorist at 70.

For the first time on video, Hal Holbrook's classic performance captures the flamboyant humor and irreverence of Mark Twain. Now all generations of viewers can experience one of the truly greatest television specials of all-time.
