$16.99 Add to cart
In this comedy-drama, a ten-year-old girl writes a letter to President Abraham Lincoln urging him to grow a beard and he temporarily abandons his inaugural tour to pay her a visit. Originally filmed in 1969, this made-for-TV movie remained unreleased until NBC aired it in 1974. The Great Man's Whiskers was inspired by the story of Grace Bedell, who wrote Lincoln just before his election to the presidency in 1860. Dennis Weaver appears as Lincoln primarily in the final quarter of the film.
