My Favorite Actresses: Joan Fontaine


The Grace of God
The magnificence of Marilyn
Could God have given us Cary Grant?

Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster
John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara
Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire

Dance On Air

They had style, they had grace
Ladies with an attitude
Fellows that were in the mood

Rudolph Valentino
Gary Cooper

Greta Garbo
Joan Leslie

Bessie Love
Colleen Moore

We love you

Did Elvis Really Live?
Did Superman Really Die?
Complex questions to a complex universe
But there is one lady in the whole universe
Who was simply Just Fontaine

Seymour would be my mother
Claudette would be my grandmother
Novak would be my girlfriend
Grace would be my wife
On the other hand Fontaine?

Just Family
Just Fantastic
Just Famous

Joan Fontaine

Just Fabulous
Just Friendly
Just Forgettable?

Oh no!

Joan Fontaine

The fragrant blooms begin with buds of soft flesh pink
open to a creamy white
with a touch of amber in the center


That would be Joan Fontaine

Very nice blog about Joan Fontaine. She is indeed living poetry in motion.

Ah ah Chris, you little cheater ;)...
I know the song "Vogue" that was sung by Madonna, but it is indeed
inspiring I have to admit!
