Template:Infobox Film Abraham Lincoln is a biographical film about former American president Abraham Lincoln, released in 1930. It was directed by D. W. Griffith and starred Walter Huston and Una Merkel. It is sometimes known by the title D. W. Griffith's 'Abraham Lincoln'. This was the first of only two sound films made by Griffith; it was not a hit at the time, but in more recent years it has come to be regarded as one of the definitive films on the president. Despite this, it contains a large amount of historical inaccuracies, such as having Lincoln deliver his Second Inaugural Address at Ford's Theatre shortly before being assassinated, and featuring the romance between Lincoln and Ann Rutledge, which some historians assert never took place.
