Joan Fontaine 1948 Romance DVD Set

Joan Fontaine in two very different roles!

Joan Fontaine lived a long and fascinating life! She was the kind of person who personally corresponded at Christmastime with her fans on a regular basis until her 90th birthday. She published a very frank autobiography in 1979 titled, “No Bed of Roses”. She died a blessed death in her sleep of natural causes at the age of 96 in her home in Carmel, California.

Most importantly, no matter the role she played, she always does a bang-up job! She could play highly dramatic roles equally as well as comedic roles – as you can see in this fun double set available exclusively from Mayda Mart.

In A Letter From An Unknown Woman, Fontaine gives the renowned director Max Ophuls what he wants. She plays both the vulnerable and later the hardened Lisa in her mature role very adeptly. You Gotta Stay Happy is a delightful screwball comedy with James Stewart and Joan Fontaine that show wonderful chemistry. Read more about both movies below.
