Revealing the latter part of the life of Samuel Clemens, this documentary by Ken Burns examines the realities behind the author's enormous popularity: his diminishing success in publishing, his volatile finances, and the tragic losses he experienced as a husband and father. Clemens' darker writings are studied along with his increasingly radical politics, which included a vehemently anti-imperialist stance. Numerous archival photos and materials enliven the program.
