The Other Mrs. Lincoln

In this week’s NOW, I talk to Sally Field, the second actress to play Mary Todd Lincoln this year. (Mary Elizabeth Winstead was seen this summer as a rather more aggressive version of the character in Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.)

I did not ask Ms. Field what she thought of Winstead’s performance, or whether vampires came up during her own exhaustive research. And I’m still kinda kicking myself for that.

To accompany the interview, here’s a gallery of five great Sally Field performances; the answers may surprise you! I also filed some more Reel Asian capsules, and took a look at the Rendezvous with Madness fest too, because sleep is overrated.
