Why would a 1994 Lincoln Town Car shift into reverse but not into any of the other gears?

Automatic transmissions have separate forward & reverse clutches. Your forward clutch is likely failed - burned out, etc. I had a similar failure on an Olds Cutlass many years ago. Got the car home by driving backwards for about four blocks (not recommended!).
