On Golden Pond is a rare and beautiful movie, radiating with humanity. Ernest Thompson has adroitly adapted his successful play to the screen, adding pictorial scope without sacrificing the human interplay.

Fonda was 75 when this picture was made and must have known he didn't have much time. There could have been no finer final curtain for him than this.

This family melodrama about aging, mortality, and reconciliation is more significant as a social than artistic event: It's the only teaming of Henry Fonda (who won an Oscar) with daughter Jane (who produced it for him) and also with screen icon Hepburn.

On Golden Pond is a mixed blessing, but it offers one performance of rare quality and three others that are very good. That's not half-bad.
