video Born on this day: Mark Twain

Author Mark Twain was born on this date, November 30, in 1835. He died in 1910.

And in 1973, he turned over in his grave because Johnny Whitaker’s acting in the film adaptation of Tom Sawyer was so bad. (Whitaker had played “Jody” on Family Affair.) If you think I’m being mean, watch this.
