Picture of the Week: Mother of the Bride

This week, here's a rare picture of Collinwood's original matriarch Joan Bennett (Elizabeth Collins Stoddard) at the wedding of her daughter on August 21 1963. 20-year-old model Stephanie was marrying Frederick E. Guest in New York City. The early 1960s marked a lean period in Joan's career; her role in Dark Shadows was still three years away.

As a kid, I was assigned to read a biography or autobiography. So choosen was "The Bennett Playbill" the story of Miss Bennett and the acting Bennett clan. The book was written by Miss Bennett with Lois Kibbee of "Edge of Night" fame, another ABC soap. I wrote to Miss Bennett as part of the class project and she sent me a lovely letter and autographed photograph of herself that I cherish to this very day. She was indeed one beautiful and classy lady!!!


What a beautiful lady!
