R.I.P Peter Fonda (1940 - 2019)

Peter Henry Fonda (February 23, 1940 – August 16, 2019) was an American actor, director, and screenwriter. He was the son of Henry Fonda, younger brother of Jane Fonda, and father of Bridget Fonda. - Wikipedia

 

My first introduction to Henry Fonda, was via the Steven Soderbergh film The Limey. Easy Rider remains one of my all time favourite film's, Fonda and the rest of the crew showed the world you could make a low budget movie. That really had something to say, while being popular with both audiences and critics alike.

 

 

Peter Fonda(Centre) celerates the release of Easy Rider at Cannes 1969. Flanked by Dennis Hopper(left) and Jack Nicolson(right).

I'm not sure who the two young ladies are?.

Good point, how many stras would put their ego to one side to humilated by Jackie Chan. Who wasnt even a big name in the West at the time. Love how he got Fonda's character to bow before kikcing him in the face.
