In yo’ life

“You gwyne to have considerable trouble in yo’ life, en considerable joy. Sometimes you gwyne to git hurt, en sometimes you gwyne to git sick; but every time you’s gwyne to git well agin.”

–Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

While sick, I have cleaned up my DVR list and watched several movies that have been sitting there for a while. I watched The Adventures of Mark Twain (1944) starring Frederic March as our famous native son. It was entertaining but pretty white-washed. At least it did stress the fact that Twain was a hero for publishing President Grant’s war memoirs and giving him 70% of the profits. And there’s a good scene where he receives an honorary degree from Oxford.
