Henry Fonda (1959 publicity still)


American actor, a top star of stage and screen, whose career spanned five decades in Hollywood. Fonda cultivated a strong, appealing screen image in several films now considered to be classics, earning one Academy Award for Best Actor on two nominations.

He was nominated for an Oscar for The Grapes of Wrath (1940), and on TV, he starred in the series, The Smith Family. Over his 47 year film career, he finally won an Oscar for On Golden Pond in 1982.

Notoriously undemonstrative in his personal life, he watched no more than a few of his films, saying that he would "be embarrassed."

Fonda married five times. His second wife, Frances Brokaw, the mother of his two children, Jane and Peter, committed suicide in 1950 while receiving therapy for depression. His family and close friends called him "Hank".

Henry Fonda died of heart disease at age 77 on 12 August 1982 in Los Angeles, California.

Steinbrecher quotes the Grand Island newspaper announcement that the "baby was born in the afternoon." (Formerly, AFA had given 2:00 AM. Kraum in Best of the NAJ/1979 gave May 19, 1905, 2:00 AM "from a private source.")
