Lincoln – A Chat With Sally Fields

by Yo Snyder

Mary Todd Lincoln has a very different place in history than
her husband. While Abraham Lincoln is remembered as a towering figure of
history, Mary Todd was the “crazy wife” that plagued him. However, is that who
she really was? What was her role in the legacy of Lincoln? Sally Fields shares
a few insights to playing one of the more fascinating characters in a movie
filled with fascinating characters. She shares not only some insights about the
person of Mary Todd, but also on the clothing and one of the rare times when a
woman is happy that her waist is
getting bigger. I know, crazy, right?
