The claymation film left me a little perplexed.  I was pleased to see a
popular representation of Twain that didn't try to erase his philosophical
skepticism.  However, having been raised in the Gumby era, I found the
medium to be inappropriate to the material.

As for other representations of Twain on film, the fairly recent film
_MArk Twain and Me_ is a pretty good portrayal of the later life.  It's a
little maudlin at times, but Jason Robards is quite persuasive as Clemens.
