This is the only existing footage of Samuel Clemens. It shows him going for a stroll in his signature white suit, smoking a cigar, and playing cards with his daughters Clara and Jean. This clip was shot by Thomas Edison at Clemens’s Redding, Connecticut home.

"That Lovin’ Rag" (1910) was written by Bernard Adler and Victor H. Smalley. This is the first song Sophie recorded for Edison Phonographic Records.
