Young Mr. Lincoln

1 year, 8 months ago at May 18 1:06
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... read more

" Henry Fonda "Born near Henderson, Kentucky, Ann Mayes Rutledge was the third of ten children born to Mary Ann Miller Rutledge and James Rutledge. In 1829, her father, along with John M.

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.
