Joan Geraldine Bennett (February 27, 1910 – December 7, 1990) was an American stage, film, and television actress. She came from a showbiz family, one of three acting sisters.
Beginning her career on the stage, Bennett then appeared in more than 70 films from the era of silent movies, well into the sound era. She is possibly best-remembered for her
film noir femme fatale roles in director Fritz Lang’s movies such as Man Hunt (1941),
The Woman in the Window (1944), and Scarlet Street (1945).
Bennett’s career had three distinct phases: first as a winsome blonde ingenue, then as a sensuous brunette femme fatale (with looks that movie magazines often compared
to those of Hedy Lamarr), and finally as a warmhearted wife-and-mother figure.
In 1951, Bennett’s screen career was marred by scandal after her third husband, film producer Walter Wanger, shot and injured her agent Jennings Lang. Wanger suspected
that Lang and Bennett were having an affair, a charge which she adamantly denied. Bennett married four times.
In the 1960s, she achieved success for her portrayal of Elizabeth Collins Stoddard on TV’s gothic fan favorite, Dark Shadows, for which she received an Emmy nomination (1968).
For her final movie role, as Madame Blanc in Dario Argento’s cult horror film Suspiria (1977), she received a Saturn Award nomination. In her New York Times obituary,
she was said to be “one of the most underrated actresses of her time”.
