Video: How Does the Disc Look?
Abraham Lincoln comes to Blu-ray with a 1080p transfer that is pretty lovely - the mere advent of being able to watch films of this age with such clarity is delicious - but, of course, not pitch-perfect. The status of the transfer print utilized is fairly strong (there are definitely some lost moments), and while elements of dirt and grime abound, the image itself is fairly clean, and grain is handled excellently, lending the movie an old-timey glow that serves it well.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
The LPCM 2.0 track on this Blu-ray Disc is completely capable, though it has definitely been accosted by the ravages of time. There's even a disclaimer that reminds us as the movie begins that many of the movie's sound elements have been destroyed - for much of the movie it's the case of 'sometimes there are sound elements, sometimes there aren't'. But even with hiccups like these, this lossless encapsulation of Abraham Lincoln's simple design is not bad, all things considered.
