He was 79. Fonda was part of a family of Hollywood royalty, the son of Old Hollywood star Henry Fonda and the brother to Jane Fonda, as well as the father of Bridget Fonda. His rise in the '60s was emblematic of the counterculture of the era. With his long hair, friendship with ’60s rock stars and rebellious persona on screen, Fonda became a symbol of the 1960s counterculture movement. His early films paired him with Roger Corman as bikers and anti-heroes in the ’60s films “The Wild Angels” and “The Trip.” He then co-wrote and starred in the 1969 classic “Easy Rider” as directed by Dennis Hopper, playing the biker by the name of Captain America. The film was nominated for two Oscars, including for Fonda’s screenplay.
