    Well, the British did support the Confederacy against the Union, and John Wilkes Booth’s father was English, so it’s not completely implausible…

    In NYC I saw James Bond shooting some homeless kid.

    Didn’t bring my phone with me that trip, alas.

    As Lincoln was shot in the back of the head, the historical parallel is fairly limited.

    You’ll also note that the gun coming off 007 (the number, not the dude) is also pointed at Lincoln. So Lincoln is double-shot in this scenario from the wrong side.

    Still, if the makers of the Lincoln poster had decided to go with Day-Lewis’s other side, that would’ve been provocative.
