Release: Aug 25, 1930
An episodic biography of the 16th President of the United States.The film starts at Lincoln's birth, through the struggles of his youth and love for Ann Rutledge (Una Merkel), marriage to the eccentric Mary Todd (Kay Hammond), whose mental fragility is subtly demonstrated in how she tries to get out a spot in some fabric, his persistence in keeping the Union together through the war at all costs, and concludes with the assassination.
A wonderful "biography" film, and a good example of early filmmaking, the main attraction in this is Huston's Lincoln. The old quality of this 1930 film almost enhances the feeling. Watch Movies Online for Free on 10StarMovies.
