    I have heard the Fonda name. Doesn't mean much to me. But I really don't like old movies.

    The classless, as well as the clueless. But those films weren't. You think so, but maybe that is because you never were from a line of actor's families. No understand to this day as to what it was/is. That's right, you never got it.

    Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart both broke into show business at the same time, the early '30s, and as aspiring stage actors roomed together in NYC. Stewart told the story about how the two of them once had no money for food, and decided to go down to the corner and try performing for tips - Stewart playing the accordion and Fonda singing. "We didn't make any money," he said.



    Stewart was a church-going conservative Republican and Fonda an agnostic liberal Democrat. They reportedly remained close friends for more than fifty years by agreeing never to talk about politics.



    Stewart, in 1942 before deploying overseas, visiting Fonda on the set of The Ox-Bow Incident, speaking with director William Wellman.

    Most recently, Fonda played Mephistopheles in the Nicolas Cage vehicle “Ghost Rider,” and a biker, for the umpteenth time in his career, in the John Travolta-Tim Allen comedy “Wild Hogs”; had a nice supporting role as a bounty hunter in the 2007 remake “3:10 to Yuma”; and reunited with Cage in the 2015 Louisiana political drama “The Runner,” in which Fonda played the younger actor’s father.


    The first significant step Fonda took on the path toward the success he would achieve through “Easy Rider” was a starring role, with Nancy Sinatra and Bruce Dern, in Roger Corman’s 1966 Hells Angels drama “The Wild Angels.” It was the first of a series of successful biker pictures produced by American International Pictures that screened at drive-ins across the country.

    Easy Rider
    reflected PF's actual situation, which they wouldn't dare expose, so they made him some Free Spirit financed by a drug deal. An honest movie would have exposed the whole Hippy = Preppy takeover of our culture: a spoiled rich kid whose Daddy bought him an expensive motorcycle, living off his trust fund as he wanders around the country and snobbishly slanders real Americans because of his own conceit of entitlement rather than for any good or real-life reason. Janey was the same way, but she, at least, never made a movie glorifying her own personal problems as virtues she could shame the public with.

    I remember when putting a flag on everything was the "thing to do". It shouldn't have been. I did it too.

    Now it's commonplace.

    You will rue forever that you ever supported the post-2007 democrat party.

    You seem to have a true resentment for anyone that benefits from generations of hard work by their fathers , forefathers etc. I noticed it on another thread too. Care to explain why ?
