Driving Ms. Crazy: 1968

1968. Comedian Joan Rivers at Rockefeller Center in New York. Photo by John Shearer for the Look magazine article "Rivers Delivers." View full size.

Joan of Arch

1968 is the year her daughter was born. I knew her, and a warmer person you could not meet. Her act is what people saw but that is not who she was. And by the way, just being serious does not represent sadness or fear. She was, like all of us, sometime pensive, sometimes inward looking. I love the photo.

Hmmm

Looks like a 1966 Cadillac Limousine. Made during a time when a limo didn't look like it was squeezed out of a sausage maker.

[The car is a 1967 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 75 Sedan -- without the glass partition of the Series 75 Limousine. - Dave]

Surprised

That no one has tried to guess the make and model of the sedan she's taking that 'scary' ride in. Anyone?

Terrified.

She looks absolutely terrified.

But I hope this photo can be seen by Mad Men's costume designer Janie Bryant.

Why so serious?

She looks like she's en route to a firing squad.

No way is that Joan Rivers

Not unless she's had massive amounts of Plastic Surgery in the last 45 years.

Transition

She was a good looking girl and later an attractive woman. Now, in her dotage, she looks like a cartoon character.

Crazy like a Fox!

This gal is pushing her 80s and that's amazing! Rivers is now working with her daughter and they're going strong. We should commend such vim & vinegar!

Wow!

I had no idea there was a day when she DIDN'T scare the children.
