Via Hollywood Reporter:

Joan Fontaine, the polished actress who achieved stardom in the early 1940s with memorable performances in the Alfred Hitchcock films Suspicion — for which she earned the best actress Oscar over her bitter rival, sister Olivia de Havilland — and Rebecca, has died. She was 96.

News of Fontaine’s death comes the same day it was announced that actor Peter O’Toole had died.
