May 20 the U.S. Post Office issues a stamp bearing the face of Oscar and Tony winner Henry Fonda who starred in 90 films, like "The Grapes of Wrath," "Mister Roberts" and "On Golden Pond" during Hollywood's 18kt years. A cocktail party in Los Angeles to celebrate this issuance will be in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences headquarters and, because the post office is a government operation, the public must be admitted. The organizing person is his widow and fifth wife, Shirlee Fonda who is, at this moment, calling her old friends to track down Henry's old friends. All known Fondas, including Jane and Peter, will attend.
