"On a sad weekend for the film world, the news of the death of Lawrence of Arabia star Peter O'Toole was swiftly followed by that of the passing away of a leading light of an earlier generation: Joan Fontaine. Fontaine, perhaps best remembered as the prototype of the "Hitchcock blonde" attractive, malleable, neurotic died only a few hours after O'Toole, at the age of 96 on Sunday morning at home in Carmel in California." http://www.theguardian.com/film/2013/dec/16/joan-fontaine-death-hollywood-mourns
