Young Mr. Lincoln


USA 1939, 100 minutes, B/W
Dir. John Ford
Genres: Classics, Drama

Topics: Politics, Period - 1800s.


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.
