Just a Lawyer in Lincoln's Hometown

Saving Lincoln

Filed under: Uncategorized — Chuck @ 8:15 pm

I attended this afternoon the first public screening of Saving Lincoln, sponsored by the Abraham Lincoln Association. Saving Lincoln is an independently produced film sharing a dramatized story of Lincoln and his good friend and “self-appointed protector” Ward Hill Lamon. Laman, originally from the south, was a lawyer who road the old Eighth Circuit  with Lincoln. He became a constant companion and bodyguard to Lincoln in Washington. He was famously absent on the night of Lincoln’s assassination. 

You can tell that this movie is both independently produced, and a work of love. The writer/producer Salvador Litvak was at the screening and his enthusiasm shone from him all through his remarks. The audience, including me, gave the film and Mr. Litvak well deserved standing ovations.
