Did You Know?
[on John Ford
] He was so egomaniacal. He would never rehearse, didn't want to talk about a part. If an actor started to ask questions he'd either take those pages and tear them out of the script or insult him in an awful way. He loved getting his shot on the first take, which for him meant it was fresh. He would print the first take -- even if it wasn't any good.
Although he was against the Vietnam War, Fonda was ultimately persuaded to go on a twenty-three day tour, taking Polaroids with the servicemen and autographing them.
Often played strong, defensive, heroic characters that were always seeking peace and justice.
