Joan Fontaine has passed away at the age of 96. I loved her performances in so many movies...especially as Mrs. de Winter in Rebecca. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Suspicion, another one of my favorite movies.
Olivia de Havilland, who played the part of Melanie in Gone With the Wind, with her younger sister Joan...in happier days. The 97-year old Olivia is living in Paris and the two sisters never spoke to each other since the 70's. I've seen this happen with my friends...sisters who don't speak for many years and then one passes away. I cannot imagine this. SO very sad!
Rest in peace Ms. Fontaine and thank you for the memories you have given us.
