Henry Fonda Dancing

Henry Fonda and John Ford made seven films together during both of their legendary careers. Ford, who had a keen eye for detail, often featured scenes of Fonda performing a peculiar but charming high-stepping dance. The clip above shows Fonda, playing Abraham Lincoln, dancing with Mary Todd (Marjorie Weaver) in Young Mr. Lincoln (1939).

Here's Fonda as Wyatt Earp dancing with Cathy Downs in My Darling Clementine:

Here's Fonda again in Fort Apache (1948),
