MARK TWAIN TONIGHT! (CBS 1967) HAL HOLBROOK
Hal Holbrook re-created for television his widely acclaimed stage monologue as Mark Twain, noted American humorist and author of the classic novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
The screen actor's award-winning portrayal is considered the quintessential model for one-man theatrical performances. Holbrook performed as Twain for more than 40 years, calling upon an archive of memorized material rather than a predefined script.
