Joan Bennett's daughter was a real beauty in her own right, not the same coloring, much lighter hair, a honey blond, and she was so much fun and so nice it made hard to realize she grew up in the Hollywood scene. I can't remember her last name now, but her first name was Melinda, and she married a fellow from the beach, the very handsome pool man, Joe Beana (sic?), who worked the upscale neighborhoods in the whole Los Angeles area, now he had a life!
From all I learned of Joan Bennett, she was a very down to earth nice lady.
The thing is with these really good looking women and men as well, especially the ones with dark hair and natural good looks, a little bit of make up goes a long, long way. They always tended to overdo them. Not playing on their natural beauty.
You know who was very good looking in person? That was Rhonda Flemming. Stunning really.
