The Only Footage of Mark Twain in Existence

In 1909 Thomas Edison visited his close friend Mark Twain’s estate in Redding, CT and filmed the famous author. The silent footage, the only known recording of Twain, first appeared in a 1909 production of Twain’s “The Prince and Pauper,” and it shows Twain wearing his trademark white suit, puffing a cigar. Twain would die one year later.
