Three Starring Jane Fonda

Three Starring Jane Fonda

4 Episodes

Few actors have dominated an era—for their work both on- and offscreen—the way Jane Fonda did in the 1960s and ’70s, when she emerged as one of the most acclaimed performers of her generation as well as a zeitgeist-defining cultural icon for her fierce political activism. All made at the peak of her career, these three films showcase Fonda’s nuance, impeccable comic timing, and versatility: she’s larger than life as an intergalactic bombshell in the cult sci-fi extravaganza BARBARELLA; riotously funny as a bourgeois housewife who takes up armed robbery in the barbed slapstick satire FUN WITH DICK AND JANE; and at once prickly and disarming as a divorced woman fighting for custody of her daughter in the Neil Simon–penned ensemble farce CALIFORNIA SUITE.
