There was a long running sibling rivalry between Joan and her sister, Olivia de Havilland...they are the only set of siblings to have won lead acting Academy Oscars. Joan for 'Suspicion' (1941) and Olivia for 'To Each His Own' (1946)

In a 1978 interview, Fontaine said of the sibling rivalry, “I married first, won the Oscar before Olivia did, and if I die first, she’ll undoubtedly be livid because I beat her to it!”


Olivia survives her sister and is 97!

I only learned from my Dad yesterday that she and Olivia de Havilland were sisters. I had no idea...
