So... why DID Joan adopt all those kids?

They seemed to bring her such disappointment. Do you think she regretted it?

She didn't adopt kids. She bought herself some nice accessories...

by B.D.'s hymenreply 103/23/2013

You spoiled it, just like I spoiled you.

by B.D.'s hymenreply 203/23/2013

Maybe I did it for a little publicity.

by B.D.'s hymenreply 303/23/2013

She could afford expensive props.

by B.D.'s hymenreply 403/23/2013

She must have been crazy.

My theory is Joan was at MGM and not liked by Louie B. Mayer who thought of her as common. L.B. had a mother fetish so Joan decided adopting some children would improve L.B.'s opinion of her and give her a new image as she grew to old to play the singletons she played in the thirties. And just generally increased publicity as she aged and her career was beginning to wind down.

The twin on the right looks like a doll.
