Get it? Stand tall? Cause Abraham Lincoln was a tall fella? Heh heh. I kill me. Kinda like when John Wilkes Booth killed Lincoln at the theater. (Too soon?) Anyways, this isn’t really about that fateful trip to the theater to catch a play. Spielberg’s “Lincoln” is more about what happens before that event, during the days of the Civil War, from the looks of it. Check out three clips from “Lincoln”, which features three main stars with three names. That’s got to be some kind of record, right?
