Veteran stage and screen star Henry Fonda and his 17-year-old daughter, Jane, take a break during rehearsals for the Omaha Community Playhouse production of "The Country Girl," June 18, 1955, in which Fonda co-starred with Dorothy McGuire. Jane won the ingenue role in a telephone audition with Playhouse director Kendrick Wilson.
Father and daughter had a famously strained relationship. "Dad didn't know how to express emotions. It was a certain generation that you just didn't do that," Jane Fonda told CBS News' Lee Cowan.
She later studied acting with Lee Strasberg.
