Dear Twain Friends;

I am happy, by the way, to be FINALLY back on the Twain List, after a
somewhat lengthy interruption for reasons of no interest to almost anyone
alive.  I will say this:  I am now installed here at St. Louis University,
in what appears to be a long-term situation, so hurray for that.

I have a number of questions I would like to sow out onto the LIST over the
next several months, but here's one for starters:

Which film adaptations of Twain works do LIST members find to be the best/
most faithful/ most authentic to the spirit of Mark Twain?

(yes, it is vague and subjective -- but I would still like to know!)
