The 6.7 average rating for this is ludicrous. I know this only from Agee's poetic script and a few excerpts I have occasionally seen on TV.Sadly, it is buried in the archives and will,almost certainly, never appear on DVD. However, the reputation for this series among classic TV "buffs" s extremely high. It was from that magnificent series, "Omnibus", which was one of the first attempts to show that the "idiot box' could be an purveyor of intelligent, informative, entertainment. Royal Dano was excellent as Lincoln. This is the Lincoln saga as symbol and myth. All of the half-legendary lore is here; Jack Kelso(played by Agee himself.), Anne Rutledge, etc. This is the Lincoln archetype, interpreted by James Agee's tortured sensibility.
