Oscar winning director John Ford directs Henry Fonda in Young Mr Lincoln in a performance many consider to be his finest. Young Mr Lincoln charts a decade in the life of a young Abraham Lincoln as he moves to Springfield, Illinois and sets up a law practice with a friend. The film centres on a controversial real life murder trial in which Lincoln represents two local brothers accused of murder. Young Mr Lincoln was a critical success and Henry Fonda’s portrayal of Lincoln captures all the humour, courage and honesty for which the former President was famed.
