Do It. Jane Fonda series at LACMA.

Until the end of February, LACMA will be hosting a series of movies starring Jane Fonda, including "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?," "Coming Home," "Barefoot in the Park," "On Golden Pond," and "Julia."

The Times' Betsy Sharkey recently wrote about the film fest for "24 Frames".

About "They Shoot Horses" from Sharkey:

"If nothing else, the film captures the human condition and its historical context in a way typical of so many Fonda films. ... Fonda plays a worn-down Hollywood hopeful paired with a dreamy farm boy, the wonderfully enigmatic Canadian actor Michael Sarrazin ... Fonda, certain this is her last chance to get her life right; and Gig Young in his Oscar-winning turn as the master of ceremonies, orchestrating the conflicts and crashes with an eye to what will keep the seats filled and the crowds entertained."

LACMA is located at 5905 Wilshire Blvd.
