Westinghouse Studio One

1033. WESTINGHOUSE STUDIO ONE (May 26,1952). CBS-TV. “Abraham Lincoln,” by JOHN DRINKWATER. With ROBERT PASTENE, JUDITH EVELYN, JAMES DEAN. Sponsored by Westinghouse, BETTY FURNESS-spokeswoman. A well done biography of Lincoln from his acceptance of the nomination to Ford’s Theatre. Excellent all-around performances overshadowed by a superb supporting appearance by 21 year old James Dean, just months after his arrival in New York and years before his first role on Broadway. Dean plays a Union soldier sentenced to be shot for sleeping on guard duty, who is summoned by President Lincoln. A brief but moving glimpse at a future super-star. 60 minutes. TV
