Brief vignettes about Lincoln's early life include his birth, early jobs, (unsubstantiated) affair with Ann Rutledge, courtship of Mary Todd, and the Lincoln-Douglas debates; his presidency and the Civil War are followed in somewhat more detail, though without actual battle scenes; film concludes with the assassination.

I recently saw Abraham Lincoln on A & E. While I think it was a great movie, it certainly shows its age. This is one movie that is a prime candidate for film restoration. The print is very scratchy and unstable, and in parts, the sound is very noisy. With the wonders of restoration, we can only hope that this movie will be one of the next.
