Actress Joan Evans' father was playwright Dale Eunson, and her mother was screenwriter/novelist Katherine Eunson. A stage performer from childhood, Evans was brought to Hollywood in 1949 with a fanfare of publicity as Sam Goldwyn's exciting new "discovery." She played the title role in Roseanna McCoy, a fanciful interpretation of the Hatfield/McCoy feud, then went on to co-star with Farley Granger in the uncharacteristically glum Goldwyn production Edge of Doom. When audience response to Evans failed to meet expectations, her option was quietly dropped by Goldwyn. Joan Evans spent her next nine years in Hollywood as a free-lancer, occasionally essaying worthwhile parts in such films as the cult-favorite western No Name on the Bullet (1959).
