Mark Twain & Mary Baker Eddy - A film by Val Kilmer


William McCrackan

William McCrackan, 57, is a long-time New Yorker who has recently become a Christian Scientist and, as a successful writer and businessman, has many friends in the city’s literary circles. He met with Twain on several occasions and urged him to correct statements about Eddy that he felt were slanderous. Twain brushed him aside and joked that McCrackan was “the whitest man I ever met.”
