Additional Information

Hollywood Television Theater: "The Last of Mrs. Lincoln" KCET, 8/16/76 Directed by George Schafer. Actor Julie Harris brings vivid life to the figure of Mary Todd Lincoln, First Lady to a hallowed President, written off by political operatives and much of the public as an unrepentant Southerner, a shrew, a spendthrift and probably crazy. Spanning Mary’s last 17 years of dwindling relationships, recriminations and ongoing tribulations, the remarkable play lights a long-besmirched American character with the light of possible vindication.

Omnibus: "Mr. Lincoln, Part 1: The Beginning and the End" 11/16/52 Directed by Norman Lloyd. The first of this five-part history of Abraham Lincoln’s early life, written by James Agee, begins at the end with Lincoln’s death and a nation’s descent into mourning.
