NFT: RIP -- Peter Fonda

Named Later : 8/18/2019 12:46 pm
With all the reminiscing about the Woodstock 50th, I couldn't let Peter Fonda's passing go unmentioned. His Easy Rider was just as much a cultural icon as the 3 Days of Peace and Music.

When he and Dennis Hopper came up with the idea of Motorcycle-Cowboys looking for America (or the Mardi Gras, or for whatever) they created a touchstone of the times. He found a place located somewhere between Roger Corman and John Ford, and claimed it.

Screenwriter Terry Southern turned their rough outline into a working Script. Even though a large portion of the dialogue in the movie is improvised ( Venusians ? The Man is at the Window ?? ), the screenplay was Oscar nominated. Jack Nicholson even suggested some songs for the Soundtrack. They talked some studio into a $350K bankroll, and rode off into the desert to invent a new movie genre.

Great line from the movie --"Share this when you're with the right people."
There was a thread on it the other day.

It was deleted because someone posted some insane ranting that I think he was saying Fonda said. And if Fonda did say that then he was a bit of a douche. But I couldn't tell if it was just something the poster made up or what.

Fonda 100% said it on twitter. He later apologized and deleted the tweet but it was disgusting and vulgar (like much of twitter).
dunno what Fonda may have said in his tweet

but 'Easy Rider' is a film burnished in mind and memory, I was doing much the same at about the same time with my R72, Mediterranean and North Africa.
RIP
He did say it

One good movie I guess for the time. Thread was removed. It was getting heated.

I started it and deleted it b/c of that asshole poster. Who may no doubt show up here again.
It wasn't a made up post.

I searched, found no hits on "Fonda" and simply couldn't let it go without a mention. In reading this morning, I didn't realize that he and Hopper did not get along at all.

I left the family's politics out of it....just Peter's catalog of work. No doubt, his last name opened some doors for him. He has some other films to his credit in his later years, like Ulee's Gold.

Iím glad you started another post. The shitbag poster kicked a person who had just died for one of Fondaís tweets and I decided to delete my thread.
Fonda was a creep
