Based on Mark Twain’s uncensored autobiography, Dangerous Intimacy tells the riveting story of the American Icon’s tumultuous last years. Featuring never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with noted scholars, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, author of ‘the great American novel’, is once again captivating audiences with the magic of his storytelling.
Dangerous Intimacy reveals how the famous author enjoyed the attentions of a flirtatious and calculating young secretary, Isabel Lyon, who desperately wanted to marry him. With the help of Twain’s assistant, an Englishman named Ralph Ashcroft, Lyon exiled Twain’s daughter Jean, an epileptic, to a sanitarium and nearly succeeded in assuming complete control over the author’s household and estate.
The narrative is drawn from a book by Karen Lystra and is based on Twain’s uncensored autobiography published in three volumes by the University of California.
