The Gettysburg Address delivered by Charles Laughton

Here is Charles Laughton delivering the Gettysburg Address in its entirety in Ruggles of Red Gap, a 1935 "screwball Western." It's quite a performance and maybe worth showing when you get to the Civil War. You can see the excellent write-up about the film here at Open Culture. The actual speech starts at about 2.27 minutes in the video but the two minutes before is entertaining. Try this link if the video will not work.

The video will not play. I would like to use this in my class, however. It would probably be more beneficial with younger students though,as I teach 8th grade.
