The wonderful and generally forgotten Hollywood Diva of the 1920’s.
She’s largely and unfortunately remembered for her role in Whatever happened to Baby Jane
[ remember the eyebrows ? ] ..though it is a great movie.
Here she is in all her Flapper glory in a timeline of photos from 1920 to 1930.Enjoy.

A quote from Joan “
“I wanted to be famous, just to make the kids who’d laughed at me feel foolish. I wanted to be rich, so I’d never have to do the awful work my mother did and live at the bottom of the barrel–ever. And I wanted to be a dancer because I loved to dance… Maybe the illusions, the daydreams, made life more tolerable, but I always knew, whether I was in school or working in some damned dime store, that I’d make it. (Funny, but I never had any ambition whatsoever to become an actress.)”
