There are very few men who can eloquently portray Lincoln and Kris Kristofferson and Gregory Peck aren't any of them. i didn't even know Dotrice was English when I saw him in this one-man show on the PBS but I was always a bit of a Lincoln afficionado.He plays the Sixteenth President solemnly and emotionally and with a certain amount of wry wit that today's Presidents rarely even exhibit. Much of this portrayal dwells on Lincoln's reflections on the Civil war and a stirring reading of the Gettysburg address but none of the shocking revelations of the horrible assassination. I have to wonder what Dotrice could have done if but this had been a movie.
