Aroview: A fresh-faced Henry Fonda gives credence to the formative years of Abraham Lincoln, seen here as a country boy-turned-lawyer assigned to defend two men accused of murder.
Unabashedly fictional, this nevertheless gains further reverence under the noble, all-American direction of John Ford. The inspiration, ironically, for Eisenstein’s IVAN THE TERRIBLE.
