Did You Know?
[on director John Ford
] It has to do with the fact that Ford, for all his greatness, is an Irish egomaniac, as anyone who knows him will say.
Fonda's first Broadway role was a small one in "A Game of Love and Death" with Alice Brady, Claude Rains, and Otto Kruger.
Noticeable for his "cat-like" walk, especially in westerns: moving at a slow but clock- like tempo, throwing forward one foot at time, while letting the arms dangle loosely at his sides.
