New York Times bestselling author Scott Eyman tells the story of the remarkable friendship of two Hollywood legends. Henry Fonda and James Stewart met as young actors and remained close until Fonda’s death 50 years later. They became friends and then roommates as stage actors in New York, and when they began making films in Hollywood, they roomed together again. They were about as different as two people could be, and Eyman tells us the story of what made for this extraordinary and seemingly improbable friendship. 

For Hank and Jim, Eyman spoke with Fonda’s widow and children as well as three of Stewart’s children, plus actors and directors who had worked with the men—in addition to doing extensive archival research to get the full details of their time together. This is not just another Hollywood story, but a fascinating portrait of an extraordinary friendship that lasted through war, marriages, children, and careers. And it’s filled with fascinating anecdotes about the countless characters in Hollywood Fonda and Stewart worked with over their careers.

Scott Eyman, a New York Times bestselling author, is the former book editor and art critic of the Palm Beach Post and a frequent reviewer for The Wall Street Journal. He has been awarded the William K. Everson Award for Film History by the National Board of Review, and teaches film history at the University of Miami.
