"Right and Wrong; That's [Not] All There Is to It!": Young Mr. Lincoln and American Law

From: Cinema Journal
44, Number 3, Spring 2005
pp. 20-34 | 10.1353/cj.2005.0024


This essay draws on historiographic and anthropological models to explore the ways in which assumptions about the law may be deployed in works of mainstream cinema. Using Young Mr. Lincoln (1939) as an example, it argues that potentially conflicting legal paradigms can be reconciled through filmic narrative.
