Starring Raymond Massey

Abraham Lincoln was born 150 years ago, on February 12, 1809. His early years are brought vividly to life in this absorbing biographical film based on Robert Sherwood's play.
Though reluctant, at every turn of his career, to accept advancement, Lincoln's moving anti-slavery speech wins for him the highest office to which an American can aspire - President of the United States of America.
