Abraham Lincoln / The Struggle

1930 NR

A celebrated leader and alcholism take center stage in this D.W. Griffith double feature. Walter Huston delivers a riveting performance in the first half, starring as Abraham Lincoln, American's adored 16th president. With the second film -- comprised of the only two sound features Griffith ever directed -- the cinematic pioneer explores alcoholism and the devastating ways that addiction can destroy a happy marriage.
