JFontaine OdeHavilland 72 sis

Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland are pictured in 1972.  According to reports they had a rocky relationship which started as children and they never  were close. (They don’t look too comfortable in this photo, do they?)  It was said that Olivia was jealous of baby Joan who came along when she was only two, and so she picked on her relentlessly. I’m sure there is much more to the story. . .

 If you care to learn more these siblings, just google them and you can read more of their unfortunate sisterhood.  Two gifted, successful women, what a shame they couldn’t just ‘get along’.
