Abraham Lincoln (1918) written by John Drinkwater and produced with the title role played by Frank McGlynn in New York in 1919

A scene from Abraham Lincoln (1918) written by the British playwright John Drinkwater (1882 - 1937) and produced with the title role played by Frank McGlynn (1866 - 1951) in New York in 1919
 



"Frank McGlynn Sr. (October 26, 1866 – May 18, 1951) was an American stage and film actor who found success later in life playing Abraham Lincoln."
"Garland suggested that the prize go to Abraham Lincoln by John Drinkwater, an Englishman. The play moved from London to New York in 1919. Frank McGlynn, who had portrayed Lincoln in the D.W. Griffith film Birth of a Nation, played the title role on Broadway."
