Photographer and Son of Silent Film Star, Captures Hollywood’s Iconic Faces

In a career that has spanned over 40 years in Hollywood, staying fresh in a very competitive field is what keeps Harry Langdon, Jr. among the top commercial and glamour photographers in the world. He always strives to capture the crisp digital images that portray his clients at their very best.

Langdon’s client list includes (or has included): Mary Tyler Moore, Richard Burton, Diana Ross, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jane Fonda, Henry Fonda, Naomi Judd, Pat Boone, Farrah Fawcett, Neil Diamond, Andy Williams, Brian Wilson, Joan Rivers, Kirk Douglas, Sophia Loren, Vanessa Williams, Boy George, Marie Osmond, Joey Heatherton, Joan Collins, Cher, Steve Martin, Petula Clark, Tom Jones, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Janet Jackson. Others are not necessarily well-known celebrities, but are the “movers and shakers” of Hollywood such as business people, doctors, authors and behind-the-scenes music executives.

“Sinatra had some dark people that were affiliated with him. On photo sessions, he would have some security guards always there and interestingly enough, on a few of the sessions, the guards were watching me to see if I’d get out of hand (laughs). But sometimes he’d have four security guards, and some were watching my crew behind me. Sinatra would get threats and not everybody liked him, but his photo sessions used to pay $25,000 to $50,000. He saw to it that they only lasted, with him in the picture, for about five minutes. That’s a lot of money for five minutes work.”

The famed photographer is the only child of the late vaudeville and silent screen comedian, Harry Langdon. Upon the actor’s death in 1944, the New York Times wrote, “His whole appeal was a consummate ability to look inexpressibly forlorn when confronted with manifold misfortunes – usually of the domestic type. He was what was known as ‘deadpan’ – the feeble smile and owlish blink which had become his stock-in-trade caught on in a big way, and he skyrocketed to fame and fortune.”


About Jane Fonda:

Jane Seymour Fonda[1] (born December 21, 1937)[2] is an American actress, writer, producer, political activist, fitness guru, and former fashion model. She is the recipient of various accolades including two Academy Awards, two BAFTA Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, a Primetime Emmy Award, the AFI Life Achievement Award, and the Honorary Golden Lion.[3]

Born to actor Henry Fonda and socialite Frances Ford Seymour, Fonda made her acting debut with the 1960 Broadway play There Was a Little Girl, for which she received a nomination for the Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play, and made her screen debut later the same year with the romantic comedy Tall Story. She rose to prominence in 1960s with such films as Period of Adjustment (1962), Sunday in New York (1963), Cat Ballou (1965), Barefoot in the Park (1967) and Barbarella (1968). Her first husband was Barbarella director Roger Vadim. A seven-time Academy Award nominee, she received her first nomination for They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? (1969) and went on to win two Best Actress Oscars in the 1970s for Klute (1971) and Coming Home (1978). Her other nominations were for Julia (1977), The China Syndrome (1979), On Golden Pond (1981) and The Morning After (1986). Consecutive hits Fun with Dick and Jane (1977), California Suite (1978), The Electric Horseman (1979) and 9 to 5 (1980) sustained Fonda’s box-office drawing power, and she won an Primetime Emmy Award for her performance in the 1984 TV film The Dollmaker.

In 1982, she released her first exercise video, Jane Fonda’s Workout, which became the highest-selling VHS of all time.[4] It would be the first of 22 workout videos released by her over the next 13 years which would collectively sell over 17 million copies. Divorced from second husband Tom Hayden, she married billionaire media mogul Ted Turner in 1991 and retired from acting, following a row of commercially unsuccessful films concluded by Stanley & Iris (1990). Fonda divorced Turner in 2001 and returned to the screen with the 2005 hit Monster-in-Law. Though Georgia Rule (2007) was the star’s only other movie during the 2000s, in the early 2010s she fully re-launched her career. Subsequent films have included The Butler (2013), This Is Where I Leave You (2014), Youth (2015), Our Souls at Night (2017) and Book Club (2018). In 2009, she returned to Broadway after a 49-year absence from the stage, in the play 33 Variations which earned her a nomination for the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play, while her major recurring role in the HBO drama series The Newsroom (2012–2014) earned her two Primetime Emmy Award nominations. She also released another five exercise videos between 2010 and 2012. Fonda currently stars in the Netflix original series Grace and Frankie, which premiered in 2015 and has brought her nominations for a Primetime Emmy Award and three Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Fonda was a visible political activist in the counterculture era during the Vietnam War and later became involved in advocacy for women. She was famously and controversially photographed sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun on a 1972 visit to Hanoi, during which she became widely known under the nickname “Hanoi Jane”. During this time, she was effectively blacklisted in Hollywood. She has also protested the Iraq War and violence against women, and describes herself as a feminist. In 2005, along with Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem, she co-founded the Women’s Media Center, an organization that works to amplify the voices of women in the media through advocacy, media and leadership training, and the creation of original content. Fonda serves on the board of the organization.
