This is #2 of three movies in three days. Netflix does not have this version of “The Adventures of Mark Twain.”

IIRC this is the movie which has him passing away as his relative looks out the window at Halley’s comet.

Wonderful flick.

I’m not sure if this is the same version I watched. If it is, one glaring mistake is Olivia, Mark’s wife, would call him Mark. Olivia always called Mark Twain “Youth” - that was her pet name for him.
