Details: Few American historical figures are as revered as Abraham Lincoln, and few director-star collaborations embody classic Hollywood cinema as beautifully as the one between John Ford and Henry Fonda. This film, their first together, was Ford s equally poetic and significant follow-up to the groundbreaking western STAGECOACH, and in it Fonda gives one of the finest performances of his career, as the young president-to-be, a novice lawyer struggling with an incendiary murder case. Photographed in gorgeous black and white by Ford s frequent collaborator Bert Glennon, YOUNG MR. LINCOLN is a compassionate and assured work and an indelible piece of Americana.
