Hey guys, had a question for you? Obviously Henry Fonda is a great actor and Once Upon a Time in the West is one of his best performances, but what other movies did you like him in? I saw 12 Angry Men, and he was very good in that, but yeah, what other movies do ya'll like with him?
I absolutely agree with you. Fonda is becoming one of my favorite actors right up there with Eastwood and De Niro
If you enjoyed "12 Angry Men" I recommend John Fords "Young Mr Lincoln" (starring a really young Mr Ford
). Just like "12 Angry Men" the plot is a trial and many points are made that makes you think. An awesome and sometimes funny performance by Fonda.
Fonda has one of the most awesome voices I know of, and he is really good at talking in this movie. I just gotta quote a scene from this movie that made me laugh so hard it hurt:
Lincoln: You say your name is J. Palmer Cass?
Lincoln: What's the J stand for?
Lincoln: Anybody ever called you a Jack?
Cass: Um, yes...
Lincoln: Why J. Palmer Cass? Why not John P. Cass?
Cass: Um, I dont know...
Lincoln: Anything the matter with John P?
Cass: No, but...
Lincoln: Has J. Palmer Cass anything to conceal?
Lincoln: Then what do you part your name in the middle for?
Cass: I got the right to call myself anything I please as long as it's my own name
Lincoln: Well if it's all the same to you I'll just call you Jack Cass.

Judge: Jackass! I just got it!
*Court breaks out in laughter again*
