  1. I really love Joan Fontaine, but like you I can’t really imagine her being evil. I particularly like her performance as Peggy in THE WOMEN (1939). It’s very interesting what you say about ALL ABOUT EVE. Few characters are able to accomplish the level of Ann Baxter’s scheming in that film! Thanks for your post!

    • Fontaine’s in The Women too?! Wow that movie boasts an all-star cast in every sense of the word. Yeah I just felt Fontaine was a poor substitute for Anne Baxter. Add in the preconceived notions about Joan not exuding evil and that seems to be to the film’s detriment.
