Joan Fontaine gives a mesmerizingly flawless performance in the 1947 movie Ivy… which certainly isn’t surprising as the incredible actress tended to do in every film she was in. Which really makes it hard to imagine why she isn’t as known today, even among casual viewers of old movies. Let’s face it, many less talented actresses and actors are household names while others with so much talent it boggles the mind cause people to say, “Hmmmm, I know the name. What was she in?”
Rant over – I haven’t had nearly enough coffee yet today to launch into one of my soliloquies on overlooked stars… even though I very much want to.
I will simply leave you with these stunningly beautiful photos of Joan Fontaine and encourage you to see her in Ivy if you haven’t already. And, pssst… tell a few people this week how amazing Joan Fontaine was.
