Lincoln, Lincoln, Bo Bincoln: Movies that Hail to the Chief
Beck, Bernard
Multicultural Perspectives, v15 n3 p148-151 2013
In this article Abraham Lincoln is considered as an alternative to the usual type of patriot's hero. He reminds us of our great historical failings. He remains a figure of controversy, a national hero in only some corners of society. He is the heroic President who serves as the first compassionate defender of the downtrodden, and he is a hero in those subcultures as well. Lincoln's treatment in the movies is discussed, focusing particularly on the recent movie "Lincoln." Lincoln is seen as a match for the usual movie hero. His famous immunity to casual treatment in popular culture is discussed as well.
