Joan Rice and Martin Boyce
Recently I was thrilled to discover this very rare press picture of Joan Rice with her fiancé Martin Boyce. It was taken at London Airport and dated 14th November 1952.
Joan and Martin Boyce were engaged in July of that year. He was a manager of an auto parts and air compressor factory.
She described him in a magazine article as a, “regular pip of a fellow". She also revealed, “We went together for a year and three months before he proposed." "As I recall it, we held hands after four months, then he kissed me on the sixth month of our meeting each other and things were on a standstill after that, until I got the news I was coming to the States."
The engagement didn’t last long though, and approximately seven months later Joan was dating David Green, a film salesman and son of veteran comedian Harry Green, in London. Joan and David were married on February 16th 1953 at Maidenhead Register Office in Berkshire.
