Mark Twain at Home Silent film footage taken in 1909 by Thomas Edison at Stormfield (Redding)(CT) at Mark Twain's estate. Twain is shown walking around his home and playing cards with his daughters Clara and Jean. The flickering is due to film deterioration, but this is the only known footage of the great author.

Nice Cliffy! When I see historical figures on old film it makes it not seem so much like a made up story someone wrote...lol

Wouldn't this clip have made our History and English classes much more interesting back in High School, instead of just reading about him in textbooks? Great find Cliffy!

I actually do remember seeing parts of this in a documentary film that was shown to my class when I was in the eighth grade.

One thing about Mark Twain that I always recall is that he was born in 1835, a year in which Halley's Comet was visible on Earth. He said he wanted to live long enough to see it again. He did. Twain died in 1910--the next year Halley's Comet was visible on Earth. (My paternal grandfather also had the same lifespan. He was born in 1910 and died in 1986--the next year Halley's Comet appeared.)
