Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School—This edition includes new entries, works inadvertently omitted from the 1999 edition, corrections, and some revised opinions. It is arranged alphabetically by title beginning with A. Lincoln—A Story of His Joys and Sorrow and closes with Zoolander. Productions discussed include those in which Lincoln is the main character as well as those in which he makes an appearance or there is only a short reference to him. They present a variety of interpretations and most reflect the times in which they were made (1901–2007). Each entry includes the date of release, cast names, the studio or production company, and length, followed by a brief albeit thorough summary and commentary. Black-and-white photographs are scattered throughout. There is a helpful chronological listing of films and television productions and a 10-page index. This alpha presentation of nearly 300 works is an intriguing read and an informative reference tool. A welcome addition to the flood of Lincoln books in this bicentennial year.—Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL

Format: Paperback
A summary of the review on StrategyPage.Com:

'This is a revised edition of the original 2009 filmography by Reinhart, who's also done The Batman Filmography: Live-Action Features, 1943-1997. Reinhard film portrayals of the 16th president since the first known treatment in 1901 through early 2012, thus missing several more recent protrayals, though this need not detract from the books' overall value. Surprisingly, hardly a year has gone by without at least one biographical, fictional, or documentary appearance by Lincoln, with some years rising to a half-dozen or so. This listing provides short critiques of the films, and includes at least one serial and several curious "cameos," including one Star Trek episode. Although not focused on the Civil War, this is a useful guide to many of the films about the conflict, and is likely to be of value to those interested in cinematic portrayals of the war.'
