No, I can't explain the embroidery. I doubt she could, either.

This snap does explain, however, why there aren't more photos of her lounging; immediately dispelled at this angle is the legend that she just had wide shoulders. No. She had shoulder pads the size of taco shells.


  1. She also seesm to have a rather decent set of cans which I never really noticed before.

    And is it just me or does that chair in the background look intimidated by Joan's presence in the room?

  2. "shoulder pads the size of taco shells" is a piece of genius.

  3. Oh, dear, now - genius? Really. Clever, perhaps...

    As for the cans - she was certainly pleased enough with them, if the stories about filming Baby Jane are to be believed...

    And of course the furniture was intimidated. Wouldn't you be?
