Photos from an extraordinary career. Her film was at its height in the golden age of Holywood cinema, the 1940s yet there was a body of work worth investigating long after that. Her work with Fritz Lang instantly springs to mind.
Below are some random photos from her career.
She was an amazing star and always thought of her fans. Right up to near the end of her life, she signed autographs for admirers who wrote to her. That was sheer class and for fans it meant a tangible link to two of the greatest movies ever made, Rebecca and Suspicion.
When she died in her sleep on Sunday 15th December 2013, a whole age of Hollywood died with her.

Below are film posters from one of Joan Fontaine's most famous roles in Hitchcock's Suspicion, one from a later and curious role in Voyage To The Bottom of The Sea and several others from lesser films or, should I say, lesser known films as everything she did was always watchable.
You won't be surprised to know but the company with the most varied of Suspicion repro. film posters is amazon. There are a vast array of her posters there - far, far more than here.
They come in various sizes and usually work out to be less than $10 per poster which I don't think is too bad. You get an unusual and beautiful item to hang on your walls and I bet your friends won't have it.
Here, occasionally, you will find an original poster from the time of the release of the movie. They are obviously far more expensive but if you have the money they are worth it as they are works of art in their own right.
