The 31 Year Old Henry Fonda
4 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having made his screen debut at 30, and previously acted in the theatre with Omaha Community Players and Cape Cod University Players, Fonda continued to pad out his c.v. with this bland film which had no sparkle or colour to it.
