Jane Fonda & Ed Harvey
WCAU Radio

Broadcast Pioneers member Ed Harvey over the years has talked with many celebrities. In 1969, he spoke with Actress Jane Fonda on his WCAU Radio program, "The Talk of Philadelphia."

Born on December 21, 1937 in New York City, Jane Fonda, daughter of actor Henry Fonda, has played almost as many different parts off-screen as on. She was on the cover of Vogue magazine twice. Her filmed debut was in 1960 in the picture, Tall Story. In the sixties, she was the wife of French director Roger Vadim, and starred in his film, Barbarella. In 1969, she was nominated for an Academy Award for the motion picture, They Shoot Horses, Don't They? She won an Oscar two years later for Klute. She was a political activist and the wife of anti-Vietnam War protester Tom Hayden. In 1972, she went to Hanoi. She posed, while there, at the controls of a North Vietnam anti-aircraft gun.

In the fitness conscious 80s, she marketed a best-selling exercise video tape. Later, in 1991 she married broadcaster Ted Turner. She filed for divorce on April 16, 2001.
