This chapter examines Hal Ashby's directorial job for the film Coming Home. When Jane Fonda offered Ashby to direct the film he immediately made it his own by bringing in his writers and editors and casting the major roles. After a few arguments about the cast, it was decided that the final main cast would be Fonda, Jon Voight and Bruce Dern. The film grossed more than $8 million in the box office.
