the story

Niagara Falls is a most enjoyable place of resort…

…The hotels are excellent, and the prices not at all exorbitant.


“Niagara” is the title of a short story written by Mark Twain and originally published in 1875 in a collection of tales titled Sketches, New and Old. The “Niagara” story is autobiographical in nature, featuring a young Samuel Clemens as he – for the first time – engages in the beauty and mystery of Niagara.

The “Mark Twain’s Niagara” features that we are producing – including the film, graphic novel and live shows – are based on the original “Niagara” story, but injected with events and characters from Twain’s more popular works, various settings, history, mystery, action and adventure!

The film is currently in pre-production and you can see the first 100 storyboards to get a sense of the adventure by clicking the image below:





You can descend a staircase here a hundred and fifty feet down, and stand at the edge of the water. After you have done it, you will wonder why you did it; but you will then be too late.
~ “Niagara,” Sketches Old and New
