Hal Holbrook - Holbrook Honours Twain On 175th Birthday

HAL HOLBROOK marked the 175th anniversary of MARK TWAIN's birthday with a special performance of his one-man play dedicated to the legendary writer.
The veteran actor took to the stage at the Clemens Center in Elmira, New York on Tuesday (30Nov10) to mark the milestone with his tribute show Mark Twain Tonight!, which sees Holbrook portray Twain and read from his most famous works.
The theatre's lights dimmed before the performance and the crowd joined in the special occasion by singing Happy Birthday to Twain, while Holbrook received a standing ovation.
The 85 year old also paid tribute to his hero, telling the crowd, "I really don't think there is anybody you can compare him to. Nobody's close to Mark Twain."
