  • Peter Fonda and Jean Seberg in Lilith (Robert Rossen directed starring Warren Beatty, Seberg, Fonda and Gene Hackman)

    Fonda impressed Robert Rossen, who directed the Oscar winner All the King’s Men. He cast Fonda in what would be Rossen’s last movie, Lilith (1964), alongside Warren Beatty, Jean Seberg and Gene Hackman. Fonda’s performance was well reviewed. Rossen signed Fonda to a seven-film contract which was to start with an adaptation of Bang the Drum Slowly[14] but then Rossen passed away.

    Peter Henry Fonda (February 23, 1940 – August 16, 2019) was an American actor. He was the son of Henry Fonda, younger brother of Jane Fonda, and father of Bridget and Justin Fonda (by first wife, Susan Brewer, stepdaughter of Noah Dietrich). Fonda was a part of the counterculture of the 1960s.[2][3]
    He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for Easy Rider (1969), and the Academy Award for Best Actor for Ulee’s Gold (1997). For the latter, he won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama. Fonda also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film for The Passion of Ayn Rand (1999).

  • Through his friendships with members of the band Byrds, Fonda visited The Beatles in their rented house in Benedict Canyon in Los Angeles in August 1965. While John Lennon, Ringo Starr, George Harrison, and Fonda were under the influence of LSD, Lennon heard Fonda say, “I know what it’s like to be dead.” Lennon used this phrase as the tag line for his song, “She Said She Said”, which was included on the Revolver (1966) album.[8]
