Young Mr. Lincoln

Where cinema is concerned, the thought process of “print the legend” is the de facto modus operandi. Young Mr. Lincoln is a piece of democratic mythology, more in tuned to iconography and hagiography than detailing what little is truly known about Abraham Lincoln’s early years.

“Where cinema is concerned, the thought process of “print the legend” is the de facto modus operandi. Young Mr. Lincoln is a piece of democratic mythology, more in tuned to iconography and hagiography than detailing what little is truly known about Abraham Lincoln’s early years. It is with this in mind that John Ford has sought not to explore the reality of Lincoln’s formative years, but to hammer home the tall tales that have built up around him, changing him into a walking/talking symbol for homespun politics and common sense intelligence.

Casting the right star in a role can add a definitive layer of symbolic weight to the part, and Ford was smart enough to cast Henry Fonda as Lincoln. Fonda is practically a walking monument to Americana itself, think of his iconic rol” read more

My Film Diary 2014 (57 movies items)

"A review in Finnish can be read here. In short, this is a deeply problematic and interesting film with some rather curious undertones. It seems to exist in a realm of its own. It's very much a product of its time with its political message and with the knowledge of an oncoming war looming above it, yet its pacing and structure are very unlike other films made during that time. It seems to come from some older era which in reality never even existed... which is probably intentional."

"The stirringly patriotic finale when stove-pipe hatted young lawyer Abraham Lincoln (Henry Fonda), having just won a case to save two homesteader boys from the gallows, walked off toward a hill in a gathering rainstorm after saying: "No, I think I might go on a piece. Maybe to the top of that hill" - and the film's conclusion with a dissolve into a shot of the statue in the Lincoln Memorial with a chorus singing "Battle Hymn of the Republic.""
