Three years ago, we learned that Steven Spielberg planned to make a movie about our Abe Lincoln. The opening was to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the birth of the 16th President.
If you’re a movie-goer, you may have noticed, ahem, no Lincoln movie.
We ran a front page story with photos of Liam Neeson and Holly Hunter reading lines in front of a gathering of the Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. (Sally Field has since been cast in the role of Mary Todd.) We reported on Neeson’s fact-finding visit to Hodgenville in preparation of the role.
