Jane Fonda: The Actress in her Time
Share this book    
It would take a restless camera to document Jane Fonda’s life for she is a woman of formidable energy, but Fred Lawrence Guiles’ expert commentary captures her in motion. We pursue her in a tireless route of study, self-discovery, and social awareness that causes her to ultimately reject the lifestyle of her first husband Roger Vadim for the role of political activist with her present husband Tom Hayden. We witness how the shift in political climate transforms her from history’s scourge to history’s darling. Yet, despite governmental harassment and public scorn for her radical beliefs, she, nonetheless, achieves international acclaim for her acting and twice received the Academy Award for Best Actress. Candid interviews with friends, relatives, and colleagues enrich this admiring but honest portrait. An unmistakable impression remains that Jane Fonda will continue to grow, and the world will continue to watch. A supplemental PDF is included with this audiobook.
