More recently though, Joans name has been pinned to the
"in production" film called
"Small Souled Men", the film is due for release
in late 2003, possibly 2004, whether
the film will be made for tv, or if its heading for the
big cinema screen, it proves

Joan will be 60 in June 2003, she currently resides in California.
In this special photo taken sometime
during the 80's, by an avid fan, you get to see Joan and
Ted, having a laugh off set. The actors of knots landing
have always said the cast all got on, by the looks of this
photo, we can't disagree!
