Henry Fonda saves his best for last
Oh,the numerous memorable characters Henry Fonda brought to the screen over the years.His most memorable came in his final film,On Golden Pond. This film brought to light two important realizations for me.Family togetherness is one of the most important things we have in life,and we had better resolve our differences as a family and get along because we can’t go back and correct the things we come to regret.Secondly,I came to realize that elderly couples are more than the stereotype we sometimes force upon them.They don’t cease to be affectionate and sexual merely because they have gotten older.Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn made a delightful couple here and make you wish they had worked together more often through the years,but unfortunately,this was their first and only film together.Also,the pairing of Fonda with real life daughter Jane was indeed a delight to see.Their own troubled relationship made them naturals for their parts as a father and daughter coming together after years of tension.You could sense that at times, Henry and Jane were not acting at all when it came to their scenes with one another,making these scenes more realistic and effective.Henry Fonda received a well deserved Oscar for this film.I watched the night he received it,and recall his reaction from his home(he was too ill to attend the ceremony),and the tears streaming down his face.I couldn’t help but shed a tear or two myself.I’m sure I was not the only one.Great film.
This is magical…
It is such a treat to see two of the screen’s most distinguished performers interacting in this wonderful film. I dare say that their brilliant performances made this film the magical experience that it is. Watching this movie, I couldn’t help but be completely won over by Henry Fonda’s portrayal of the cranky old professor dealing with old age. He was totally perfect, and despite being cranky most of the time, very lovable. I believed that he gave the performance of his career in On Golden Pond. And Katherine Hepburn was great as usual, in the less difficult but equally likable role of Fonda’s wife. I cried many times during this movie, not only because the story itself is wonderfully touching, but also because of the sheer joy at seeing two great stars together, giving the performance of their lives.
