  • A Very Poignant Film

    I was in total amazement that this was the film that provided Mr. Henry Fonda with his one and only Academy Award. But what a complete and total honor for a man who never gave a mediocre performance in his entire film career. Mr. Fonda is one of my favorite actors and this film speaks volumes to me regarding father/daughter relationships, growing older, and the fears we all face as time reflects on both. Great performances by the 2 leads (Hepburn, Fonda), and a very special, poignant film. It has become one of my favorites (along with Casablanca, The Searchers, Shane....) and one film I never tire of watching. Very beautiful and touching - a must see.

    Old pap (Henry), a woman in need of a slap (Jane), and a kid who thinks his decent life is crap (the forgotten blonde boy). Really good scene between Henry and Dabney soon after Dabney is introduced to the curmudgeon. In another scene, when Henry tells Jane they just don't like each other, we've all got the sense through the years that the same could be said in real life. Such came about because, although both liberal, only one spent a life tolerant of opposing points of view and only one is seen as a patriot.

    Last night we saw "On Golden Pond" live by a local- and very talented - theater group. Excellent production. Live on stage! Now I was to see the original to compare!!

  • Enjoyable

    Just saw this last night and really liked it. Its funny but also dramatic. Its about a couple that come back to Golden Pond and how things changed there. There daughter (Jane) comes to visit with her fiance and his son. I don't want to give it away so you should just watch it ;)

    Since the main stars of this film were elderly actors, nobody wanted to finance this film until a foreign Theatrical Distributer from the united Kingdom took it on-- The ending results was a true winner... A beautiful film and regarded as a classic. Henry Fonda wins his only Oscar... .
