The Witnesses

Douglas Fairbanks, jr - Former husband to Joan Crawford

     "She [Joan] was nothing like the woman written about in "Mommie Dearest." I don't feel it's so vitally important to write attacks on people who are in no position to defend themselves. I find it very difficult to understand. I'm scared of dying myself. Then I won't be able to answer back."

        - Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (June 1981)

     "This is another fictional film which has no resemblance to someone in real life that I knew."

- Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (November 1981)
