Commemorates the Centenary of Mark Twain’s Death

Kultur commemorates the 100th anniversary of Mark Twain’s death highlighting the DVD of one of the most stunning successes in show-business history, Hal Holbrook's brilliant one-man , Mark Twain Tonight! This landmark performance has played to sold-out audiences in theaters around the U.S. and abroad, and was viewed by millions on its inaugural national television broadcast performance on March 6, 1967.

Hal Holbrook has performed on stage as Mark Twain far longer than Twain did himself. His 56 years of one-man Mark Twain Tonight! shows reached a milestone in Elmira, N.Y., this month, being performed on the actual centenary of the author's death.

The Emmy Award-winning actor has been gluing on a bushy mustache and pontificating in a gravelly twang since his first full-fledged Twain impersonation in 1954. Now this live performance is available on DVD, bringing Mark Twain to life -- voice, celebrated wit, and all.

In this extraordinary theatrical achievement, Holbrook becomes truly transformed, recreating the incisive mind and scalding tongue of the legendary man from Missouri, described by William Faulkner as "the father of American literature."
