Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart were friends for many, many years from early summer stock to New York and then in Hollywood. They roomed together more than once. Henry was a Democrat. James was a Republican. Henry was from Grand Island, Nebraska. Jim was from Indiana, Pennsylvania. In his 1998 memoir, Don't Tell Dad, Peter Fonda remembers the two of them building model planes together. They didn't talk a whole lot, but they seemed to enjoy each other's company. I like them both a lot.
