Abraham Lincoln/The Struggle

underdog's picture

D.W. Griffith's only sound films! Released as part of the Griffith Masterworks 2 collection, this double-feature includes the newly-restored Abraham Lincoln (USA, 1930, 93 mins.), Griffith's epic biography of Lincoln, featuring a remarkable performance from Walter Huston as the martyred president. This is followed by The Struggle (USA, 1931, 93 mins.), and Griffith pulls no punches in this rarely seen last film, which illustrates the destructive influence of alcohol. In this talkie, Hal Skelly stars as a hardworking everyman who falls victim to alcoholism and makes his home a living hell for his trusting daughter. (--Facets)
