Filmed in Technicolor, the 2-reel Lincoln in the White House was one of a series of "patriotic" short subjects produced by Warner Bros. in the late 1930s-early 1940s. Lincoln look-alike Frank McGlynn, of whom it was said that he'd never truly be satisfied with his acting career until he was assassinated, once again plays Honest Abe. Most of the story takes place within the walls of the White House, as President Lincoln sorrowfully presides over the War Between the States. When not trying to pacify his bickering cabinet, Lincoln struggles to come to grips with the frequent illnesses of his beloved son Thad (Dickie Moore). Lincoln in the White House ends with Frank McGlynn's heartfelt recitation of The Gettysburg Address, a scene that reportedly elicited cheers from movie audiences in 1939.
