So, not because of my stepfather, not because I particularly liked the combination, Joan Fontaine was born that night…”

The voters might well have thought Hitch was my Svengali, that after so many undistinguished performances in the past, surely it was Hitchcock who had mesmerized me into the performance I was nominated for. However, I did receive the New York Critics Award, as well as the Canadian.”

Joan Fontaine 1917-2013

This article is an insult to Joan. It pretty much rehashes internet circulated falsities; compares her acting to she-who-must-not-be-named, and refers to the aforementioned as the “stronger”, “gutsy” actress. This is more of a tribute to she-who-must-not-be-named than it is to the titled subject. This article also claims to wonder why Joan had not ever been nominated for a Golden Globe Award-maybe because you never nominated her for one? Fucked up if you ask me and I can’t believe I didn’t find it until now.
