Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Near the end of the movie, we see Raymond Massey tieing a string around a chest. On the chest it reads: "A. Lincoln- White House." This is factually incorrect. During Lincoln's time, the White House was known as the "Executive Mansion." The term, "White House" was not coined until the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt, some forty years after the Lincoln Presidency.
  • "Theater Guild on the Air" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on February 9, 1947 with Raymond Massey reprising his film role.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The Lincoln-Douglas debates took place in 1858 - one year before John Brown attempted to seize the Harpers Ferry arsenal.
  • Based on Robert E. Sherwood's Pulitzer Prize-winning play.
