Joan Fontaine is one of my favorites because she starred in so many films I love. One of my all time favorite films she was in is Rebecca, 1940. This Alfred Hitchcock version of the Daphne De Maurier novel is the best in my opinion and it is featured in my favorite films section. I also enjoyed her in Jane Eyre with Orson Welles and consider it to be the best filmed.
At this writing, Joan Fontaine is still with us and so is her famous sister Olivia de Havilland. They both are getting on now with Olivia living in Paris and Joan in California. Joan used to correspond with her fans on a regular basis until her 90th birthday. The only time fans hear back from her personally is at Christmastime.
