The dialog is the problem with this one...
26 September 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode of "Studio One" is an impressive looking biography of Abraham Lincoln from the time he accepted the Republican nomination in 1960 until just before he left to go to Ford's Theater...and to his death. For a TV production, it has very nice costumes and the folks who made it must have worked hard to make this all look good. However, it also has a HUGE problem--the dialog. Again and again, Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln (as well as others) talk as if they are talking for history books or for some omniscient eye--recording everything for posterity. So, instead of sounding human, which they certainly were, they speechify--talking AT the audience and making grand statements that sound more fake than a TV infomercial. The net result is a rather dull film which SHOULD have been much more interesting-- after all, it IS Abraham Lincoln we are talking about--not just some ordinary shmoe!

If you do watch it, and I DON'T recommend it as history SHOULD be exciting and realistic, look for James Dean in a small part as a soldier who falls asleep while on guard duty.
