Not a Henry Fonda film, nor is it a Don Ameche film (who went on to appear in 'Trading Places' with Eddie Murphy in the early 80's). This film belongs to Hollywood and is the story of the progress of humanity. It is not a vehicle for anyone's career, it is merely documenting the human experience as in the stage.
