"It is quite a worthy pictorial offering with a genuinely fine and inspiring performance by Walter Huston in the role of the martyred President." - Mordaunt Hall, original 1930 New York Times review
Timeless. Walter Huston is amazing. The film is gorgeous. Steven Spielberg's Lincoln with Daniel Day Lewis is just out. Another era, pointing both forward and backward, to the greatness of art, now, and then.
