TIL that Stephen Douglas briefly courted Mary Todd, who went on to marry Stevens political rival, Abraham Lincoln.
Lincoln fills us in on his feelings about Stephen Douglas--but is talking about Mary Todd more.…
Walking through the town today and saw a very beautiful woman walking arm in arm with Stephen Douglas. I inquired about her, her name is Mary Todd. I think I have found the love of my life.
I know it's silly to point out historical inaccuracies in Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, but Mary Todd was never engaged to Stephen Douglas
Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas just met at a pharmacy and Mary Todd showed up, but it's daylight so no vampires.
Oh, look, Mary Todd and Stephen Douglas with Abe in the store. They are also people from history!
Stephen Douglas was one of Mary Todd's suitors?!?! Whoa!
Abe needs to be taller. And uglier. Same with Mary Todd, who was not engaged to Stephen Douglas. At least he's awkward.
But Stephen Douglas never had a thing with Mary Todd right ...
Stephen Douglas had dibs on Mary Todd before Lincoln
Mary Todd, who was born on this day, was also proposed to by Lincoln's rival, Stephen Douglas.
Stephen Douglas wanted Mary Todd. He lost that to Lincoln too.
I find it funny that Mary Todd was Stephen Douglas' fiance before she was married to Lincoln just because of all the Lincoln-Douglas debates
I am watching Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and am learning quite a surprising amount about Lincoln and Mary Todd that I previously did not know. I'm not being sarcastic, btw. I seriously did not know that Mary Todd dated Stephen Douglas before Lincoln. This is like Michelle Obama dating Romney before Barack.
Random, useless, historical thought: I'm doing research for a documentary I'm writing about the Old State Capitol and I see a very detailed old photo of Stephen Douglas, Abraham Lincoln's political rival and romantic rival -- Douglas wooed Mary Todd, too. And I'm telling you, I really don't get why people thought Lincoln was ugly, especially compared to Douglas! Oh my! Let's just say it's a good thing the "Little Giant" had brains cuz he sure fell short (pun intended) in the looks category.
Mary Todd is dating Stephen Douglas. Is that.historical? I don't think so.
When I saw "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" I thought the cheesiest thing was the love triangle between Mary Todd, Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. 'How juvenile can you get' I thought. 'How can you write that down, and even if you did, who'd run with that? Who'd act it out?' I found out Sunday that, in real life, Stephen Douglas and Lincoln were after Mary Todd at the same time. So now I think they're all circus freaks, and I think the real reason the Lincoln-Douglas debates were popular was, it was the 19th century version of The Batchelorette; and I'm remembering Jerry Springer was based in Illinois too, so you guys need to check your drinking water, because it seems to be a constant thing out there.
Day 4 of my movie challenge and today's entry was Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter. I expected this to be bad but it exceeded my expectations. I've been defending the pedigrees of the people involved with this based on their past excellence. I won't make that mistake again. Some of the worst CGI sequences I've ever seen. Trying to fit in historical figures(Mary Todd, ok; Harriet Tubman, Jefferson Davis, and Stephen Douglas feel forced) felt a bit exploitative. I found two positives, somehow: the axeplay was new and unique and well done; and the love story with Mary Todd was cute. Next up: Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
I've had a very educational trip to the Philippines. I've visited the Spanish walled-city, the History museum of Ayala, AND seen Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. And in case you're looking for any sort of historical innaccuracy in the film--Lincoln and Stephen Douglas were NOT romantic competitiors for Mary Todd. I don't know where Hollywood comes up with such nonsense.
Saw Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter last night and learned a lot about our 16th President. Did you know that Mary Todd was going out with Stephen Douglas before Honest Abe stole her away?
Eg: stars as Stephen Douglas and gets one scene. And that's to introduce Mary Todd! I know his role was cut down but sheesh!
