The glamour of the Fonda family knows no bounds, thanks to Henry Fonda and his daughter, Jane Fonda.
Veteran star Henry, was one of Hollywood and Broadway’s greats for five decades and won an Oscar for 1981’s On Golden Pond.
Some of his most famous works include Jezebel, 12 Angry Men, Mister Roberts and The Grapes of Wrath.
Ford married Canadian socialite Frances Ford Seymour in 1936 and the pair welcomed their daughter Jane a year later, and their son Peter in 1940.
Unfortunately, the couple’s marriage wasn’t the easiest, as Seymour struggled with bipolar disorder and depression thanks to a troubled childhood.
In 1950, Seymour was in bad health, and so was her marriage. While a patient at Craig House, a sanatorium in Beacon, New York, she sadly committed suicide. Her death occurred three months after Ford asked her for a divorce.
