Massey & Gordon are quite brilliant in their roles not at all stereotyped or in Lincoln's case glorified but a believable portrayal of a great & flawed man. Sherwoods script is very good with the supporting cast generally good. Quality of print esp. soundtrack excellent.

Massey doesn't do this on his own. The ensemble cast is exceptional, from the teacher who helps him improve his education, to the local judge, to his law partner and Stephen A. Douglas. All these people help make this film the exceptional story that it is.
If there is one film about Lincoln to recommend, this would be my first pick.
