A Few of My Favorite Joans
As Joan Crawford is the Star of the Month on TCM in January, I've been seeing her name around a lot lately. It got me to thinking about how many of my favorite stars were named Joan, the kind of women who are indescribably amazing to me. Mentioned the crazy cool of Joans on Twitter, knowing that I was missing a lot of names:
My followers helped me to fill in the holes left by my sleep deprived brain. There were some Joans I was was astonished to have missed. Here are my favorites, and a few clips demonstrating why:
Joan Greenwood, in The Importance of Being Earnest (1952) (link leads to great clip)
Other fabulous Joans: Collins, Davis, Bennett, Leslie, Sutherland, Plowright, Jett, Sims and of course of Arc...I'm sure there are more?
Thank you to @chrisgiddens, @RobertWRossEsq, @GMLidington, @DianeFudge, @70sStreetFan and @GrandOldMovies for your Joan input.
