Young Mr. Lincoln
Dir. John Ford. 1939, 100 mins. Archival 35mm print. With Henry Fonda. Exquisitely dramatizing a series of minor, mainly fictionalized events, John Ford examines the qualities that made Abraham Lincoln his personal hero. Ford “achieves the perfection of his art” wrote Geoffrey O’Brien. “It is a masterpiece of concision in which every element in every shot, every ratio, every movement, every shift of viewpoint seems dense with significance, yet it breathes an air of casual improvisation.”
