Joan Fontaine (born Joan de Beauvoir de Havilland, Oct. 22, 1917 − Dec. 15, 2013) was a British-American actress. She began her career on the stage in 1935 and signed a contract with RKO Pictures that same year. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress for Hitchcock's Suspicion (1941) making Fontaine the only actor to ever win an Academy Award in a film directed by Hitchcock. Fontaine & her elder sister Olivia de Havilland are the only set of siblings to have won lead acting Academy Awards.
