Synopsis

Silent movie grasp D.W. Griffith's first talkie works as a companion piece to his basic BIRTH OF A NATION, offering an in depth biographical sketch of the 16th president. We see his delivery in a log cabin, the tragic demise of his old flame, Ann Rutledge (Una Merkel), his debates with Douglas, his accepting of the presidency, the horrible toll of the Civil Conflict, and eventually the tragic assassination at Ford's Theater. Griffith reveals his normal meticulous consideration to interval element, and the framing of the assorted vignettes has the texture of historic images come to life. Walter Huston is superb within the title function, with a portrayal that subtly evolves from laconic, wizened rascal to noble elder statesman. It is a fascinating, worthy movie, and an fascinating historic doc in and of itself.
