'His heart was flying free' - Jane Fonda on death of 'Easy Rider'

Peter died at the age of 79 on Friday morning, and his family subsequently revealed that he suffered respiratory failure due to lung cancer. The two-time Golden Globe victor and Academy Award nominee "passed away peacefully" while surrounded by family in his Los Angeles home on August 16. Fonda passed away following a respiratory failure that was caused by lung cancer.

Easy Rider with a script co-written by Fonda, helped usher in a period known as the New Hollywood era of filmmaking, which often avoided happy endings and other conventions of the Hollywood studio system.

A chance meeting with Roger Corman, another film-maker and producer, albeit in the B-movie field, led to firm friendship with Corman and Fonda's role in the director's Hells Angels movie, The Wild Angels in 1966, which also starred Nancy Sinatra. "He went out laughing".

In a statement, his family said: "In one of the saddest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our hearts". Fonda brought a psychedelic philosopher's touch to a role that, in lesser hands, might have gone unnoticed and obscured by the more frantic and colorful Dennis Hopper or the scene-stealing Nicholson. For his performance, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor and won The Golden Globe.
