Portrait of Henry Fonda from the movie "Fort Apache" 1948 - by Jim Bruce

Portrait of Henry Fonda from "Fort Apache" - by Jim Bruce

"A portrait in oil on canvas of Henry Fonda. The U.S. flag has always blown me away as a graphic device, so I used the civil war version (c.1865) as a backdrop. Fonda is portrayed as an officer in the U.S. Cavalry in the terrific movie Fort Apache, an 1948 epic that grossed $445,000.00. Pretty modest by today's standards! He was 43 at the time." - Jim Bruce
