    Fonda is IMO one of the five greatest actors ever. Best film would be 12 ANGRY MEN and best performance....hmmm too hard but I'll go with OX BOW. I've got 14 sitting here to watch.

    2. 12 Angry Men - A
    3. My Darling Clementine - A
    4. Mister Roberts - A
    5. Once Upon A Time in the West - A
    6. The Ox-Bow Incident - A
    7. The Grapes of Wrath - B+
    8. Midway - B
