1965 Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln Show - A Pioneering Achievement in Animatronics and Entertainment
The 1965 Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln Show was a groundbreaking achievement in the field of animatronics and entertainment. Premiering at the New York World's Fair and later becoming a permanent attraction at Disneyland in California, the show featured an animatronic Abraham Lincoln giving a speech compiled from several of his historical addresses. Created by Walt Disney and his team of Imagineers, the Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln Show captivated audiences and set the stage for future developments in animatronics and theme park attractions.
In 1964, the New York World's Fair opened its gates, showcasing a plethora of technological advancements and entertainment options for visitors. Among the many attractions was the Illinois Pavilion, which housed the Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln Show. The show was a collaboration between the Walt Disney Company and the State of Illinois, as Lincoln was the state's most famous son.
To bring the animatronic Abraham Lincoln to life, Walt Disney and his team of Imagineers developed a sophisticated system known as Audio-Animatronics. This technology enabled the realistic movement and synchronization of the figure's mouth, eyes, and facial expressions to a pre-recorded speech. The life-sized figure of Lincoln was sculpted by famed Disney artist Blaine Gibson, while the programming and mechanical systems were engineered by Disney's WED Enterprises division.
The speech delivered by the animatronic Lincoln was a compilation of several of the 16th President's most famous addresses, including the Gettysburg Address and selections from his second inaugural speech. The audio recording was performed by actor Royal Dano, who was selected by Walt Disney for his strong resemblance to Lincoln's voice.
The Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln Show was a resounding success at the New York World's Fair, and its popularity led to its installation at Disneyland in 1965, where it remains a beloved attraction to this day. The show's innovative use of animatronics marked a turning point in theme park entertainment and opened the door to the development of more sophisticated Audio-Animatronics in later Disney attractions, such as Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion.
In 2009, the attraction underwent a significant refurbishment, incorporating new technology and an updated speech to maintain its relevance and appeal to modern audiences.
The 1965 Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln Show was a pioneering achievement in the world of animatronics and entertainment. By combining Walt Disney's creative vision with cutting-edge technology, the attraction brought history to life in an immersive and engaging way. Today, the show's impact can still be felt in the ongoing development of animatronic figures and themed attractions worldwide, making it an enduring testament to the power of imagination and innovation.
