Film: Hansel & Gretel
In 1983 Joan was asked to appear in the Faerie Tale Theatre version of Hansel & Gretel, playing not one but TWO parts.
The first still shows her as Hansel & Gretel's Stepmother seen here with woodcutter husband Paul Dooley.
As the story goes they take the children one day deep into the forest in an attempt to lose them and as darkness falls they stumble across a gingerbread house adorned with candy occupied by Joan; heavily disguised as the Wicked Witch seen in this second still with Bridgette Anderson.
I'm sure everyone knows the rest of the story and like most fairy tales it does have a happy ending ...
The film was released straight to video by MGM/UA Home Video in the UK.
