    Lost our cabin when I was young. Away at work for long periods of time, and didn’t have funds to pay others keep it up properly in our absence. Was entirely off-grid. So used propane. And was so remote there weren’t any roads. Only accessible by boat. Fish, swim, hike and explore the woods. And as the sun went down, board games, cards, books, magazines, comics. -Had fantastic great times there. Great memories. Years later, to add insult to injury, I started (also!) getting a serious bug for a remote winter cabin. When you’re old like me, the experience value of such places is more for youngsters, young families. .

    I’m in my 50’s and plan on being a curmudgeon. Looking forward to it. I try to practice so eventually I’ll be good at it. I have plenty of money so family members try to stay on my good side. I’ll make them earn it!

    This movie made me want to be an actor. I was 12. Mad that my dad got this movie…instead of whatever silly movie that was out. The acting is so perfect. Wish I would have stuck with it in college. I was only freshman to get a lead role. I was Klinger from Mash. Good times. My drama teacher got into some trouble after my sophomore year. The new drama teacher didn’t connect with any of us. I wish we never lost you Mrs. Pastusek. You would have kept me interested and focused. She made me feel I was talented enough to give it a try. What ifs…..

    Oh my gosh ! My favorite movie ! Saw it when it first was released. Thank-You for posting. I’m done for …the rest of the day, overwhelmed with memories.

  12. Kelly Sims on November 24, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    Stupid. Stupid. His death is not worth as much as any our ours. Stupid. I dont like this movie at all. What a shame.

  13. Edward Karlson on November 24, 2021 at 1:26 pm

    The Fonda bitch might as well be naked. I’m not watching this pretentious virtue from someone that hates it.

  14. Kelly Sims on November 24, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    45:18 Jane Fonda said she was called a spy. Hehe

    What a nice film. Found myself crying here and there. And I mean, tears just kept flowing. They sure don’t make movies like these anymore. I like that it doesn’t have that noise in the background that you hear in the movies nowadays. No, here you can just listen to nature or the realness between the people without the music coming in to interrupt a scene. And hey, i just found out that that one of the boys standing by the gas pump is Troy, Jane Fonda’s son. So not only did Henry act alongside his daughter, but he also shared a scene with his grandson. And that’s truly beautiful. And Jane did discuss that emotional scene between her and her father on the lake towards the end. She truly meant it when her line was, "I want to be your friend". But what Henry did not expect was that Jane would reach out and touch his arm when she said that line. Which caught him off guard and got him emotional and you can see it when he covers his face with his hand and looks down. After his response to that line, Jane had already giving it her all and could not feel the emotion again until she saw Katherine Hepburn on the shore encouraging her to do the scene one more time and feel it again which Jane did and you see it when she then turns her back as if not to look at her father directly and then delivers her line. Very emotional scene between the two of them. And boy did I feel it. Really great stuff here. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    To The makers of this movie. Why do you think Using God’s Name Like you do. Make a movie Any Better?

  17. Carrie Black on November 24, 2021 at 1:31 pm

    This movie is so wonderful! The lake is so beautiful and am craving this kind of life.

  18. Mike Skidmore on November 24, 2021 at 1:32 pm

    1983 $38.00 for Gasoline it says $19.00 on the Pump it says 67.9 cents per gallon ? Marinas have always been high .. I did a search says the average price in 1982 was $1.31 1985 $1.13 . I was paying attention because I thought maybe the young boys were going to try and cheat the senile old guy ..

  19. Kelly Sims on November 24, 2021 at 1:32 pm

    Jane Fonda is now an 80yr old barbie doll. Dont people know who to grow old gracefully?

  22. Kelly Sims on November 24, 2021 at 1:34 pm

    What a bunch of bullshit. We all die. Imagine the poor children that die without love! We all die. This is nothing more than a privileged white dude dying

  23. Maxid1 on November 24, 2021 at 1:36 pm

    I haven’t seen this in about 40 years but I still remember the high points.

  24. Janet Duncan on November 24, 2021 at 1:38 pm

    Such a beautiful movie. I first saw it in the theater when it came out. I could identify with Chelsea’s character, wanting to be close to her dad. I always felt out of touch with him. When he died I couldn’t stop crying. I couldn’t believe he was gone. It does go by so quickly.

  25. Nancy 🎈 on November 24, 2021 at 1:38 pm

    😒What an amazing movie! Can’t believe I never saw this movie and I’m living in New Hampshire πŸ€”. Excellent cast, beautiful scenery, nothing like good ole Squam Lake and its surroundings πŸπŸƒπŸ‚πŸπŸƒπŸ‚πŸ¦†

  26. Calaf on November 24, 2021 at 1:39 pm

    I was only 26 when this movie was out. no I was 27 I guess.

  27. Maxid1 on November 24, 2021 at 1:40 pm

    I was almost 45 mins into this before I remembered half of my family was like Norman. The other half were/are clinically insane. It made for intetesting Thanksgivings. To quote my late father after everyone left, "Thank God that’s over."

  28. Mike Skidmore on November 24, 2021 at 1:42 pm

    I actually paid to see this in a Movie Theature.. I don’t spend much of anything on the garbage that comes out of Hollywerid these days.. Plus Jane Fonda was such a Radical ..
    Katherine Hepburn nearly started to death during the great Depression had had a Ravanous appetite the rest of her life..

  29. writerconsidered on November 24, 2021 at 1:42 pm

    I saw this once when I was a kid. seeing it again with age and its a whole different movie.

  30. Kelly Sims on November 24, 2021 at 1:43 pm

    This is a sick twisted movie about a man with the privilege or dying with help from his well off family. Please remember those that struggle to live with nothing! Nothing to comfort them. And no one to fight for them!

  34. Elizabeth Vasquez on November 24, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    The movie was hard to watch but I do understand why my grandfather and dad we’re so stuppern and seemed unhappy at lot of times I can be bitter at times specially on holidays sometimes I’m bitter my self I get it! jane Fonda is so beautiful

  35. Lynn Pearson on November 24, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    Golden light upon the pond was magical.
    The rest: FISHY.

  36. Kelly Sims on November 24, 2021 at 1:51 pm

    I cant help to think of all the kids that grow up without proper mothers and fathers. They break the law and their lives are over. These kids never had a golden pond! And then society wonders why these kids commit mass shootings . Its so obvious that we must be our brothers keeper. My son is a manager at a grocery store. I worry about him everyday. Is he gonna get shot? Am I gonna get a phone call? I just am so scared. Its terrible that we have to live like this. School curriculums need to include emergencies and need to be taught how to handle such things. This makes me so very very sad. Does anyone else feel this way?

  37. Catherine Neal on November 24, 2021 at 1:51 pm

    Fantastic acting by two of the greats.

  38. C Young on November 24, 2021 at 1:52 pm

    It has been a long time since I saw this one. It is like a breath of fresh air in these messed up times that the world is in right now. Normal. I wish I could crawl into it and stay there away from the insanity outside our doors

    Cute movie for this 85 yr old who lost his wife 2 yrs ago to cancer.

  42. Naminski on November 24, 2021 at 1:54 pm

    The original theatrical print has the 1963 Universal Pictures logo.

  43. Katharine YQ Jin on November 24, 2021 at 2:00 pm

    God, loved first 4 minutes, both music and scene.

  44. Heart of Hawaii on November 24, 2021 at 2:03 pm

    one of my favorite old movies. Yay! Thanks for sharing this with all of us.

  45. Martha Mack on November 24, 2021 at 2:05 pm

    I wish there was some context as to the relationship difficulties here between father & daughter. I cut my father out of my life too, however, it was because he was both emotionally & physically violent. My mother wouldn’t stop him at the time & later tried to blame me for the distance between us. This mother seems . . . seems to be doing the same thing w/ Chelsea, but we don’t get the advantage of the back story.

  46. ugaladh on November 24, 2021 at 2:05 pm

    always loved that opening theme. Had the soundtrack on vinyl back in the day. now i can just go to you tube

  47. Kelly Sims on November 24, 2021 at 2:06 pm

    That woman has been shaking since I was born! And im 50. You think big pharma could have done something by now! I guess there is more money in diabetes πŸ€”

    I never realized that after many years I’m getting old. Not as old as the main characters but I will be that old sooner. I’m thankful for all the blessings and good memories with my family and friends.
