    I'm of the opinion Dame Joan wouldn't use such language to respond to a fan request. Behind the scenes (off the record) might be a different matter but putting something in writing and returning it just seems off to me. How do we know there wasn't more to this story? Did this fan already send 20 letters prior to these? Was Miss Joan Collins being harassed? We don't know. And I expect Dame Joan to respond in kind with her best Alexis put down, not street language.

    Well that's how I imagine it anyway.

    I don't think it was her either. Although the "J" looks like it could be from her, but i think everyone could write that letter like this after a short time of practice.

    I don't know what would annoy Joan Collins the most, the fact that this old dispute has resurfaced (assuming that it is a legit document) or the fact that the person on Ebay referred to her as a Dallas actress! :re:

    As for the letters, what strikes me is that the person who wrote her is not a fan of hers but simply of the theatre as such and maybe she didn't consider herself to be one of the theatre's actresses after doing one play there. It's not the same as some of the veteran actors who probably had several years contract with that theatre. Still it seems odd for her to respond to the request in that way when it would have been easier to simply ignore it.

    So it's possible this is a false document that someone is trying to make money off.

    I highly doubt that Joan did that. I myself sent Joan a large envelope of pictures and even Dynasty scripts along with a note requesting she sign them. She signed everything, even personalising each item and writing a funny comment on a picture of her and Stephanie Beacham catfighting in Dynasty season 9.
    She's pretty great at signing things for fans as she had a bad experience as a young girl when an actor she admired didn't send their autograph.

    But of course. Dynasty's history is even better than we thought!

    I think Caress intercepted it, and so it was her - and not Alexis - who started the big feud. A fabulous twist a la Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?
