"Hello, Golden Pond. We've come to say goodbye."
Since its debut, ON GOLDEN POND has been a vehicle for numerous pairs of distinguished actors to display their full powers: from Katherine Hepburn and Henry Fonda in the acclaimed 1981 film adaptation, to Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer in a 2001 television version, to James Earl Jones and Leslie Uggams in a 2005 stage revival. In its film incarnation, ON GOLDEN POND earned ten Academy Award nominations, and won three: for Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay – by Thompson himself.
