N2 - In Young Mr. Lincoln, director John Ford and screenwriter Lamar Trotti engage an issue that is central to Ford's films and to Lincoln's political thought. That issue is the tension between individual greatness and the rule of law, a tension heightened in a democracy by the demos's passion for equality. In the film's portrayal of Lincoln, Ford and Trotti suggest a solution to this tension that is fundamentally consistent with the one Lincoln suggested in the Lyceum Address. To remain within the political community, the great man must hold a sincere reverence for the law and be willing to exhibit humility in declaiming his own superiority. In the context of these characteristics, greatness can be a force that preserves the law and protects the community from harm. The film depicts Lincoln as the paradigmatic combination of these characteristics and alludes to his mature leadership based on these commitments in his later career.

Abe goes over to the mother of the Clay boys and tells her that they have to hurry to save her sons. The woman looks at Abe and asks who is he? Abe thinks for a second and then says: "I'm your lawyer." The men grab a tree log and start busting down the jail door. Lincoln works his way forward and gets between the door and the tree log. The men tell him to get out of there, but Lincoln bravely won't budge until they listen to him. Lincoln now says that he can beat any man among them. A big fellow named Buck comes forward, but quickly backs out. The mob still wants to hang somebody, so Lincoln starts saying that he's just a lawyer starting out and they are trying to take his first clients from him.

Lincoln assure them that he will do what he can for the Clay men.Mary Todd invites Lincoln to a party given by Mrs.
