The seller in Minnesota, Jamison Kohout, says one of the two Chris-Crafts on the set was destroyed in a scene where Henry Fonda’s character gets ejected from the boat. Kohout says what he has for sale is the remaining 22-foot long boat viewed as the collector’s item from the movie. He says it’s been stored in a climate-controlled garage. The sale ends January 1, 2009.
Academy Award nominated, Director, Mark Rydell hit a home run when he cast Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda in the movie “On Golden Pond.” Hepburn and Fonda both won Oscars. It was Fonda’s first Oscar and Hepburn’s fourth. The 1981 film will long be remebered for the two actors who in their twilight years brilliantly brought to life their characters.
