Black and white publicity photograph of an older Fonda as Admiral Nimitz in Midway
Photograph signed: "Henry Fonda". B/w, 8x10. Depicted as Admiral Chester W. Nimitz in the 1976 WWII epic, Midway. Imprinted "©Universal Pictures" at lower margin. The Battle of Midway, fought near the Central Pacific island of Midway, is considered the decisive battle of the war in the Pacific. Before this battle, the Japanese were on the offensive, capturing territory throughout Asia and the Pacific. The Japanese had planned to capture Midway to use as an advance base as well as to entrap and destroy the U.S. Pacific Fleet. The U.S. Pacific Fleet surprised the Japanese forces, sinking the four Japanese carriers that had attacked Pearl Harbor only six months before, while only losing one carrier. After Midway, the Americans and their Allies took the offensive in the Pacific. One of the cinema's most enduring actors, HENRY FONDA (1905-1982) enjoyed a highly successful career spanning close to a half century. His first important Broadway part was in the first edition of New Faces in 1934. That was followed by the title role in The Farmer Takes a Wife, which he repeated in Hollywood the following year. Two years later, Fonda was an established star appearing in such films as Jezebel, Jesse James, Young Mr. Lincoln, Drums Along the Mohawk and The Grapes of Wrath. Fonda enlisted and served three years in the Navy during WWII-serving in Air Combat Intelligence in the Central Pacific, he was awarded a Presidential Citation and the Bronze Star. In March 1982, five months before he died at the age of 77, Henry Fonda won his only Academy Award for his performance in On Golden Pond, co-starring Katharine Hepburn and his daughter, Jane Fonda. In 1999, Fonda was named the sixth Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute. Lightly surface creased. Lightly stained at upper left blank margin. Overall, fine condition.
