This Story is Both Gripping and Emotional,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Day Lincoln Was Shot [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I read the book by Jim Bishop that this movie was based on and thought "this would be an awesome movie." I am generally extremely anti-made-for-tv -movie, but found this movie to be just as emotionally gripping as the book. While the movie falls a bit short in the details area, it packs a lot of emotional wallop in it's portrayal of the events that night. You WILL be moved to tears by the splendid soundtrack and tragic portrayal of one of the most infamous nights in World History.
