Filed under : About.com, War

A British actress born in Japan and the younger sister of Olivia de Havilland, Joan Fontaine was an exceptional performer who became a star in Alfred Hitchcock’s American debut. In fact, she was the only actor male or female ever to win an Academy Award for her work with Hitch. She had noted rivalry with sister, Olivia de Havilland, which led to them not talking at all later in life. Fontaine was a star during Hollywood’s Golden Age, but never reached iconic status.
