Stunning Photos of Jane Fonda in the 1960s

  • by

Born on December 21, 1937, to famed actors Henry Fonda and Frances Ford Seymour, Jane Fonda became an Oscar winner twice. She has now achieved success in her own profession as an actor and political activist.

Jane Fonda played June Ryder in Tall Story, her first major motion picture role, in the 1960s. Most people do, however, agree that she had her debut in Cat Ballou, where she co-starred with Oscar winner Lee Marvin in the title role. She began to gain recognition after receiving positive reviews for her performance in Barbaella, which turned her into a sex icon. “Fonda goes all the way with it, as screen actresses rarely do once they become stars,” observed renowned film critic Pauline Kael. She had to decline a number of jobs at the end of the decade, including the main roles in Bonnie and Clyde and Rosemary’s Baby. She also had appearances in four Broadway productions throughout this decade.
