A humble, earthy bio-drama from John Ford, starring Henry Fonda (who I felt was spot-on as a choice for the role) with a surprisingly decent fake nose for '39, and a young Ward Bond as the hooligan Jack Cass (priceless). A really sweet classic. (Bonus disc's BBC pre-war biopic of Ford and talk show interview with Fonda is superb; it nearly eclipses the feature. Invaluable for any admirer of these icons.)

Movie filmed in 1939. Henry Fonda is a young pre-president Lincoln. A good job at bringing the personality and well known character of Abe to the screen. A lot of annoying background music. But for anyone interested in who he was prior to being president and while a young and very passionate lawyer, this is a great movie. Very nostalgic to watch a movie from so long ago. The pace is completely different from all that we now experience in movies.

Abe Lincoln (cross-examining J. Palmer Cass): "...Your name's 'J. Palmer Cass.' " John Palmer Cass: "Yeah." Abe Lincoln: "What's the 'J' stand for?" John Palmer Cass: "John." Abe Lincoln: "Anybody ever call ya Jack?" John Palmer Cass: "Yeah." Abe Lincoln: "Why 'J. Palmer Cass?' Why not 'John P. Cass'?" John Palmer Cass: "Well, I..." Abe Lincoln: "Has 'J. Palmer Cass' anything to conceal?" John Palmer Cass: "No!" Abe Lincoln: "Then whattya part your name in the middle for?" John Palmer Cass: "I got a right to call myself anything I please... long as it's my own name!" Abe Lincoln: "Well... if it's all the same to you, I'll just call ya Jack Cass." (crowd roars)
