Beautiful. Especially the way she contemplates her award no differently than if she were staring at one of the numerous drinks on the table.
Interesting picture, indeed. She won the Oscar for her performance in Suspicion, although some may have believed that it was more like a consolation prize, for not winning it with Rebecca the year before. What is interesting though, in my opinion, is the thought that these two roles were eerily similar to Fontaine’s personal life at that time. The feelings of doubt and loss that she portraied in these roles were probably genuine to her, hence the bitter-sweet look up there.
she was stunning…and what a telling photo. Hollywood…blech!
