She began her own production company, Rampart Productions, with her second husband in the 1940s. After a brief hiatus in the mid-50s due to a shortage of quality roles for talented actresses, Joan continued in the theater in the 1960s. Today, at 88, she leads a quiet non-public life in California with her friends, dogs, and flower gardens.
