A Movie Lincoln for 1930s Hard Times: John Ford’s Young Mr Lincoln


Cruciform Lecture Theatre 2 | Cruciform Building (link Map)
Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

John Ford’s film offers a mythic depiction of a youthful Lincoln. His Lincoln, beautifully played by Henry Fonda, fits the director’s political idealism. This talk by Professor Iwan Morgan will focus on how the film allegorises Lincoln’s future role as a Civil War leader and his willingness to fight for the values he believed in.

Registration recommended.
