Overview:


Among the most masterful matchups of actor and role in screen history is this stirring film of Robert E. Sherwood's beloved play taking a thoroughly human look at the early years of our 16th President. Raymond Massey wonderfully plays the future Great Emancipator in a chronicle of his backwoods childhood to his phenomenal rise to President. Ruth Gordon also does memorable work as driven, ambitious Mary Todd Lincoln, whose vision of Abe's leadership destiny will not be denied by anyone.
