Only known video footage of Mark Twain

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

Silent film footage taken in 1909 by Thomas Edison at Stormfield (CT) at Mark Twain’s estate. Twain (Samuel Clemens) 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.
