Joan Rice had travelled all the way to Fiji in 1952 to film His Majesty O Keefe with Burt Lancaster – a big Warner Brothers Production.
This followed very quickly after The Story of Robin Hood 1952 for Walt Disney. Joan Rice was certainly in the big league forthese TWO films. She was VERY good in them both but somehow, inexplicably, her film career seemed to fade after that.
Whatever happened to her at that time, we can only guess, but for these two films alone, she should be well remembered.
Sadly Joan Rice died a number of years ago in 1999. She was a very beautiful girl as this picture confirms.
