D. W. Griffith charts the life of Abraham Lincoln, from his early life as a shopkeeper to his presidency and eventual assassination. Abraham Lincoln is only one of two sound film Griffith ever made, neither of which was a box office success. Writing for The New York Times, Mordaunt Hall called it "quite a worthy pictorial offering with a genuinely fine and inspiring performance by Walter Huston in the role of the martyred President."
