Henry Fonda – photos and quotes

“I was lucky to avoid the big-studio operation at first. I signed with Walter Wanger, and because he didn’t make enough pictures to keep me busy, he loaned me out. I was hot at the time, so I got some good ones.

“There was one picture, I was crazy to do, ‘The Grapes of Wrath.’ I remember sitting in Darryl Zanuck’s office and listening to him talk as he waved his big cigar and that damned polo mallet of his. He promised me if I signed a term contract, I’d get lots of other good pictures. Like a fool, I signed. After ‘Grapes of Wrath,’ I got nothing.”Henry Fonda

“If there is something in my eyes, a kind of honesty in the face, then I guess you could say that’s the man I’d like to be, the man I want to be.”Henry Fonda
