TRIPS, JOURNEYS AND THE RETURN HOME: AN IN-PERSON TRIBUTE TO PETER FONDA

June 9-10, 2011

Actor Peter Fonda first attracted moviegoers' attention in a pair of classic Roger Corman counterculture films, THE WILD ANGELS and THE TRIP, that took advantage of his easygoing charm and skill with a motorcycle to introduce a new kind of movie star. The promise of those early roles was fully realized in the landmark EASY RIDER, which Fonda also produced and co-wrote; his iconic Captain America role in the film would prove to be as timeless a screen figure as the Western heroes portrayed by Fonda's dad, Henry, years earlier. In subsequent decades, Fonda has proven himself an adept, innovative director with films like THE HIRED HAND and WANDA NEVADA, and his stature as a performer has only grown with superb work in ULEE'S GOLD (for which he received an Oscar nomination) and THE LIMEY (not to mention a hilarious riff on his Captain America character in John Carpenter's ESCAPE FROM L.A.).

We are thrilled to welcome Peter Fonda to the Aero Theatre!

Series compiled by Larry Karaszewski and Grant Moninger. Program notes by Jim Hemphill, title by Beth Hanna.

Peter Fonda will appear in person for a double feature of THE HIRED HAND and THE LIMEY.
