Mark Walters sits down for a one-on-one interview with

PETER FONDA

 

  Every now and then I get to sit down with someone I consider to be a legend in Hollywood.  Peter Fonda is certainly no exception.  Sporting a big smile and relaxed demeanor, he greeted me in the private showcase room of Heritage Auction Galleries, where we sat down to discuss the incredible items he had consigned for the upcoming Music and Entertainment auction.  Looking over the magnificent collectibles, it was hard not to be overcome by the amazing history behind them.  The highlight without a doubt was the flag featured on the back of his jacket from EASY RIDER.  You know, the jacket Captain America wore as he made his famous ride into the hearts of moviegoers everywhere back in 1969?  Yeah, that flag... sitting side by side with the prototype Rolex watch he wore, the American Eagle badge from his jacket, and so many other astoundingly cool pieces of memorabilia.  Anyone who has ever met Fonda knows the man has plenty of stories to tell, and clearly loves telling them from the looks of it.  It was an honor for me to have the opportunity of speaking with such a talented man.  In the following interview, you'll hear Peter talk candidly about his experiences working in film, and even get treated to a few personal stories in the process.  I only wish I could've talked to him for hours more, but the time I did get with the man will remain cherished by me.  The following interview has been divided into two parts.  Just click the PLAY button and enjoy.  Special thanks to spot4media for providing our camera.
