"I found him quite similar to the roles he played," a co-star said. "There was that easy, loping gait when he walked. But he had so much that happened in his life, there must have been turmoil going on underneath." Part of the mystery and appeal of Henry Fonda (1905-1982) was the hidden depth that his grace and kind voice concealed. In his private life, the disturbances were unmistakable; all but one of his five marriages seems to have been unhappy; his first wife killed herself after he rejected her. When he was a teenager, his father forced him to watch the lynching of a black man; as a parent, he was described by his children as distant. Devin McKinney (Magic Circles) explores the Academy Award-winning actor both through his riveting film performances and his life when the cameras turned off.
