Saving "Private" Lincoln: a conversation between Salvador Litvak, director of "SAVING LINCOLN" and Stephanie Ronnet

Salvador Litvak based his film on Ward Hill Lamon's memoirs. This outstanding first-hand account describes the unique bound uniting Abraham Lincoln to his bodyguard, U.S. Marshal Ward Hill Lamon. 

Despite encountering many obstacles during the process, Salvador Litvak took up the challenge of shooting an epic film on Lincoln on a very low budget, and conquered! 
 
Clearly inspired by Lincoln's strength and determination, Salvador Litvak gave a new meaning to "thinking outside the box". He invented a new technology called "cinecollage, which resorts to actual Civil War photographs to create the sets.
