JEZEBEL

Directed by William Wyler
Starring Bette Davis and Henry Fonda

(1938) Bette Davis’ consolation prize for not being allowed to run in the Scarlett O’Hara race was this role as a spoiled antebellum Southern belle whose headstrong behavior—including wearing a red gown to an all-white ball—risks fiancé Henry Fonda’s love. Davis, for the first time under future beau Wyler’s direction, won her second Oscar. 35mm. Approx. 103 min.

“A dazzling romantic melodrama.”
– Pauline Kael

YOUNG MR. LINCOLN

Directed by John Ford
Starring Henry Fonda

(1939) Henry Fonda’s Abraham Lincoln loves and loses Ann Rutledge, studies law, runs his first political race, meets Mary Todd and Stephen A. Douglas, and takes on a climactic murder trial at the behest of family friend Alice Brady—with its solution found in a farmer’s almanac. 35mm. Approx. 100 min.

“Ford’s mythologizing has seldom seemed stronger or more subtle.”
– David Kehr

“Explodes in the histrionic splendor and ‘excess’ of the celebrated final sequence.”
Time Out, London

“A Masterpiece of concision, yet it breathes an air of casual improvisation.”
– Geoffrey O’Brien
