Henry Fonda

You know you've had a stellar acting career when your greatest film is a toss-up between The Grapes of Wrath and 12 Angry Men. Or was it The Ox-Bow Incident or Mister Roberts? Some critics pass over those classics altogether and declare Henry Fonda's best film to be his last, On Golden Pond. The actor received numerous Oscar nods during a career that spanned five decades, but by the 1980s, he had limited most of his work to television, with the exception of 1981's On Golden Pond. The film, which also starred his daughter Jane and Katharine Hepburn, tells the story of an aging couple who spend a life-changing summer at their vacation home. It earned 11 Academy Award nominations and a Best Actor win for Fonda, his first and only Oscar. He died of heart disease at age 77, just eight months after the film was released.
