Mark Twain’s “The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg”
– A 40-minute film followed by discussion.
The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg is a splendid example of Mark Twain’s keen insight into human nature, humorously told in a short story. The events in this story in 1898 could be happening today.
The feelings of the citizens of Hadleyburg speak to the very nature of humans. It’s constant! The film is refreshingly funny. We love to laugh at the expense of others.
A good candidate for lively discussion. Everyone will delight in the town’s revised motto, Lead Us Into Temptation.”
