ON GOLDEN POND
Shipyard Park, Mattapoisett, MA
Meet the creator Ernest Thompson and the Oscar he won for it during the weekend-long Harbor Days celebration sponsored by the Mattapoisett Lions Club.
Starring Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda and Jane Fonda. Directed by Mark Rydell. The loons are back again on Golden Pond and so are Norman Thayer, a retired professor, and Ethel who have had a summer cottage there since early in their marriage. This summer their daughter Chelsea — whom they haven’t seen for years — feels she must be there for Norman’s birthday. She and her fiancé are on their way to Europe the next day but will be back in a couple of weeks to pick up the fiancé’s son, Billy Ray, Jr. When she returns, Chelsea is married and her stepson has the relationship with her father that she always wanted.
