Craig Wasson stars as young journalist Mark Twain in this delightful adaptation of Twain's hilarious 1869 book about his travels in Europe. Among the continental eccentrics Twain meets on the road: David Ogden Stiers as a fun-loving doctor and Brooke Adams as a headstrong, Shavian woman. On-location European settings add to the flavor.
