The film features a series of vignettes extracted from several of Mark Twain's works, built around a plot that features Twain's attempts to keep his "appointment" with Halley's Comet. Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher, and Huck Finn stow away with Mark Twain on an incredible journey in Twain’s airship.
The Adventures of Mark Twain was the first full length feature film in the magic of claymation, directed by Will Vinton (best known for The California Raisins animation).
The tune is called Gratifaction and the scene is Mark Twain's recollection of Missouri, the bit about white-washing a fence, Johnny Whitaker as the title character in the Sherman Brothers' musical production of Tom Sawyer 1973.
Young Johnny Whitaker (title character) can be forgiven for being charmed by Miss Rebecca Thatcher (Jodie Foster), making her first appearance in the Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman musical version of Tom Sawyer, 1973.
From the quirky mind of writer/producer William H. Hoffman Jr. comes a short irreverent comedy that’s BANNED BY THE CHURCH. Breaking Bread follows a messenger of God named Sister Mary Blaze played by Roxanne Albee (Sisters of Death, The Monkees).
Can there truly be a separation of Church and State? This nun like no other creates plenty of waves with her reeferendum, Proposition 420. As she takes her campaign to the community, she ends up having dinner with The Wallaces, a conservative couple desperate for something new in their stale marriage played by Josh Albee (The Saga of Jeremiah Johnson, Tom Sawyer) and Valerie Kairys Venet (Vanishing Point, The Monkees).
