In the early 1960’s Jane Fonda emulated Old Hollywood glamour. She debuted on Broadway, glided into her film career and then in the 70’s, marched into political activism. Her 1970 mugshot was just the beginning of what would be a highly criticized journey in civil rights activism. Even before she travelled to Hanoi in 1972, she was a prominent face of the anti-Vietnam War movement.
