("Every nation has the government that it deserves." - Joseph de Maistre (1753-1821))
IIRC this is the movie which has him passing away as his relative looks out the window at Halley’s comet.

(This is not a statement of fact. It is either opinion or satire; or both.)
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.
