Librarian and film enthusiast Doug Swiszcz wraps up his Fond of Fonda film lecture series saluting Henry Fonda with a showing of Clarence Darrow. Fonda won acclaim in 1974 playing the famed lawyer on stage. This slightly-shortened version was videotaped for television and earned the actor an Emmy nomination. Essentially a tour-de-force, one-man performance, Clarence Darrow allowed the actor to find common ground with the attorney in their shared liberal philosophies and their identification with and support of the common man. The program is in color and runs for 81 minutes. It is preceded by commentary from Doug, and is free and open to all.
