Henry FondaHENRY FONDA (1905-1982), born Henry Jaynes Fonda, it's impossible to believe that anyone interested in motion pictures wouldn't know who he is. He is one of the handful of actors considered royalty, the best of all time. His image of personal honesty and integrity was transmitted to the characters he usually portrayed. He is credited with at least 85 movies, many TV guest appearances, and a couple of TV series.

The Grapes of Wrath (1940)
