Joan Fontaine Movies on TCM in November

Guest Author - Sandy Mullins

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) star of the month Joan de Beauvior de Havilland (Joan Fontaine) was born October 22, 1917 in Tokyo, Japan. She is the younger sister of actress Olivia de Havilland. The girls fulfilled their motherís dream (Lillian Fontaine) of being an actress. Joanís first stage name was Joan Burfield so she wouldnít compete with her sisterís use of the family name that Olivia was using. Joanís first small role was in 1935 in No More Ladies. Two years later she started using her final stage name Joan Fontaine and landed the role in You Canít Beat Love in 1937.

Joan continued to act in movies and in 1940 she was nominated for an Academy Award for the movie Rebecca. She didnít win her first nomination but the next year was nominated again for Suspicion. This time she won and took home her Oscar. Joan was nominated for a third Oscar for The Constant Nymph the following year. By the late 1940s her movies were decreasing in number and successes. Joan started doing TV and dinner theaters and well as Broadway plays. The last time Joan appeared before a camera was in the TV production Good King Wenceslas in 1994. Joan is writing in her spare time and you might still catch Joan on stage and in the lecture circuit.
