James Stewart and Henry Fonda, The Cheyenne Social Club
I get as big of a kick out of the friendship between James Stewart and Henry Fonda as I do any great romantic relationship from Old Hollywood. Why? For one thing, they’re two of my favorite actors, so just about anything they did was aces with me.
For another, these two were about as different as night and day – especially politically. I just love the fact that they were mature enough to put differences of opinion behind them. The average person doesn’t allow others to have their own thoughts – especially nowadays. Everyone seems to think everyone else should, needs to, and simply MUST think the same way they do… you know, vote for who they do, agree with the policies they do, even follow “the right” people on Twitter!
Good for James Stewart and Henry Fonda for realizing the foolishness of such thinking.
Makes me even more of a fan of each… if that’s even possible.
