"Lincoln" Movie Exhibit Opens Next Month
Costumes, furniture and other props used in Steven Spielberg's 2012 film ``Lincoln'' will go on display in Springfield next month.
The items will be featured in an exhibit that opens Jan. 17 at Union Station, across the street from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports the exhibition is called: ``Lincoln: History to Hollywood.''
It includes dresses worn by Sally Field, who played Mary Todd Lincoln, as well as a vignette of the first lady's bedroom set. The display also has items used on the set for Lincoln's office.
``Lincoln'' won two Academy Awards, including best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis' portrayal of the president.
