On Golden Pond - starring Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda and Jane Fonda. A magnificent acting duet between Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn. I named my youngest daughter Chelsea after the character Chelsea played by Jane Fonda.
- An awesome thriller ode to the "deadly sins" directed by David Fincher. The awesome casting of Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey, and Gwyneth Paltrow's head in a box where it should remain for all of her films.
Directed by Edward Zwick. With Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes, Morgan Freeman. Robert Gould Shaw leads the US Civil War's first all-black volunteer company, fighting prejudices of both his own Union army and the Confederates.
If you were born in the biggest box office star in movies that year was John Wayne - his Western film out that year (directed by John Ford) was Rio Grande with his co-star Maureen O'Hara. It would be the first of 5 films they would make together.
