Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • DIRCAMEO(John Cromwell): abolitionist John Brown. In his next film role, Santa Fe Trail, 'Raymond Massey' portrayed John Brown.
  • The original Broadway production of "Abe Lincoln in Illinois " by Robert E. Sherwood opened on October 15, 1938 at the Plymouth Theater, ran for 472 performances and won the Pulitzer Prize in Drama in 1939.
  • After his success playing Lincoln in the film and on Broadway, Raymond Massey began to assume the character in real life. He often appeared at social gatherings dressed in Lincoln-esque attire, assuming a Lincoln-like manner and speech. His friend, the playwright George S. Kaufman, observed, "Massey won't be satisfied until someone assassinates him."
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Lincoln's House Divided Against Itself speech occurred when he accepted the Illinois Republican Party's nomination for U.S. Senator and not at any of the Lincoln-Douglas Debates.
