Fonda’s ‘Ulee’ Role One Of His Greatest

By The Spokesman-Review

Opposite Dennis Hopper in “Easy Rider,” for example, or as the doomed rancher who goes back for Warren Oates in “The Hired Hand.” Now we can add “Ulee’s Gold” to the list. In the hands of director Victor Nunez, Fonda slips seamlessly into character and lets the film move around him no small feat. , DataTimes ILLUSTRATION: Photo
