Abraham Lincoln- 1930, starring Walter Huston and Una Merkel
He says- Huston is excellent is this sincere but static biography of Lincoln; can't match Griffith's silent masterpieces. 2 and a half stars.
I say- wow, I was so excited today to watch a movie about Abraham Lincoln from 1930! What better way could I spend this morning? Oh wait, anything would have been better! You know you're in for a treat when there's a disclaimer stating "this movie has been restored best it could, and is missing reels and sound in some spots. Anyway, this movie jumped around A LOT. Like he leaps from the death of his first sweetheart to all of a sudden becoming a respected politician. In one scene, the makeup is so bad he looks like a transvestite. 1 star.
