The President
15 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Little-seen but effective historical-based episode examines the reported psychic phenomena that occurred on that awful April day in 1865 that 16th U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by actor John Wilkes Booth at Ford's theater watching a play. This episode recounts Mr. Lincoln's reputed dream he had earlier of seeing himself in a coffin while hearing the nation weeping. His wife Mary(played by Jeanne Bates) is deeply worried, and with good reason... Also recounts two other stories of psychic foreknowledge of the assassination involving a newspaper typesetter and a hotel guest bothered by unseen wailing. Fine acting and presentation for the brief time allotted.
