Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was voted number two of the ten best films of 1930, heralding the comeback to movie-making by one of the world's leading pioneers - D.W. Griffith. This was Griffith's first foray in the realm of 'talkies.' Griffith's focus on Lincoln juxtaposes the bitter struggle of mankind with a worthy outcome despite tortuous odds.
