Joan Fontaine

Items from the home of Academy-Award winning actress Joan Fontaine will be auctioned off this winter.  Fonatine was a classy actress and starred in one of my favorite movies, The Women.  She could place the ice queen and the innocent.

Christie’s says her possessions could bring $200,000 to $300,000.  One of the most prized items is her 1941 Oscar for best actress for Hitchcock’s Suspicion.

Here is a list of the best Fontaine movies:

The Women starting Norma Shearer and Joan Crawford

Rebecca starting Lawrence Olivier

Suspicion starring Cary Grant

Fontaine died last year at 96 at her Carmel, CA home.

The Heights Theatre

Here’s shameless promotion….

If you are a lover of classic movies and live in the Minneapolis area, try the Heights Theater in Columbia Heights.   Every Thursday night this summer they are showing classic movies.  Tonight is one of my favorite movies, The Women.

They also show independent films.

The theater is a truly original experience.  You walk in and see a tastefully decorated theater as well as golden chandeliers.  They have an organist and the organ comes out of the floor!

It is one thing to see a classic movie on TCM and another to see them on the big screen!

Do yourself a favor and go to The Heights!
