Henry Fonda and Margaret Sullavan share a birthday, a film — and a marriage!
Henry Fonda and Margaret Sullavan were both born today, May 16 (4 years apart). They starred in one film together, The Moon’s Our Home (1936), — and they were married to each other for two months (married December 1931, separated after two months, then divorced in March 1933; first marriages for both).
Sullavan and Fonda were married on December 25, 1931 in Baltimore, while they were performing with the intercollegiate summer stock company, University Players, during its winter season. The marriage lasted only two months.
