Provenance: Joan & Walter Wanger, were Joan Bennett (1940–65), and Walter Feuchtwanger (1894-1968), whose mother shortened the family name to "Wanger" because they were Jewish. Walter Wanger was an American filmmaker, active from 1910 till the making of Cleopatra in 1963 where he was producer. The production for this, his last film, was turbulent, hugely expensive and nearly bankrupt 20th Century-Fox films. "Joan Geraldine Bennett (Wanger) (February 27, 1910 – December 7, 1990) was an American stage, film and television actress. Besides acting on the stage, Bennett appeared in more than 70 motion pictures 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 The Woman in the Window(1944) and Scarlet Street (1945)." – Lew Jaffe, "Confessions of a Bookplate Junkie."
