1981: The drama "On Golden Pond," starring Henry Fonda, in his final film role, Katharine Hepburn and Jane Fonda, opens in limited release. The movie would go on to earn 10 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director for Mark Rydell, and Best Supporting Actress for Jane Fonda, with Henry Fonda and Hepburn winning for Best Actor and Best Actress and Ernest Thompson winning Best Adapted Screenplay for adopting his own play. The movie also found success at the box office, earning nearly $120 million to eventually finish as the year's second highest grossing film, behind only "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
