A VERY PRETTY COMPLEMENT HAS BEEN PAID Mrs. Lillian Fontaine, mother of Joan Fontaine and Olivia De Havilland, by Mark Dennison, who writes to say: “I should think Joan Fontaine and Olivia De Havilland should be terribly proud of their mother, who sometimes acts under the name of Kit Colvin. I saw her performance as Aunt Martha in a camp show of ‘Arsenic and Old Lace.’ She is so different from most movie mothers — so obviously well bred and not a stage struck, ambitious woman, but a charming older woman of beauty and as much talent as, if not more than, her daughters. I admire her for using her talent instead of just sitting back basking in their reflections I should think she would be wonderful in movies.”

From the Milwaukee Sentinel.

  1. The best thing out of BCP was the TV series, “Hogan’s Heroes.”
