Young Mr. Lincoln (20th Century Fox, 1939). Folded, Very Fine-. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A. From the Mike Kaplan Collection. This film of the early years of Abraham Lincoln, with Henry Fonda as the great man, was dramatically brought to life by director John Ford. Initially, Fonda refused to play Lincoln, fearing he couldn't do justice to the role, and that his career would be hurt. In their first meeting, Ford cussed him out royally, insisting that he wasn't playing Lincoln at all, but ..." a young 'jackanape' country lawyer facing his first murder trial...." This beautiful poster is superior to the style B photographic one sheet and one Heritage has never offered before. The poster displays pinholes in the corners and within the borders. There is a water tidemark on the left border and slight crossfold separation.
