Joan Cusack is perhaps best known for her decades-long career as an author, but in fact she also spent many years working as a mystery writer, and even as a police reporter. Her books are known for being suspenseful and unbelievable. Even her non-fiction books, such as ones on the life of Jesus were not far off from being considered works of fiction. As well as writing mystery and non-fiction works, Joan Cusack has also written screenplays and articles.
Joan Cusack was born inulesville, Idaho, and grew up in what was considered a quiet mountain town. Her father, a truck driver, died when Joan was very young, and she was raised by her grandparents. At the age of twelve, Joan began to develop a talent for writing, and sent several letters to her family in an attempt to get them to read her work. One of these letters was written in pencil, and was addressed to her mother, stating that she wanted to be a stand-up comedian. Her grandparents, rather than helping her realize this dream, told her to concentrate on writing books and promised to help if needed.

Joan Cusack studied acting at college in New York City, and even appeared in some theater, playing the same character in two different plays. After graduating in therefore she pursued various voice roles in television, such as an extra in “All about Eve”, and a supporting role in “E.T.” Eventually, Joan Cusack landed a voice part in “Beverly Hills 901” and began to gain notice for her distinct, unique style of comedy. Joan would also voice parts in movies, such as the animated character Pennyapence in the animated film “Pixels”. While these films did not quite reflect Cusack’s distinctive style, they did help to establish her as an extremely versatile and accomplished actress.
In the lead role of the animated film adaptation of the novel “A Wrinkle in Your eyebrow” (also known as “A Fish called Wanda”), Joanna Cusack took on the role of Wanda the Amazon Princess, a foul-tempered old woman who was reclusive because of her old age. When she learned that her granddaughter was being raised by her Uncle Scrooge, she resented the poor man for his lack of financial support, but was willing to make arrangements with him for the upbringing of the child. During this time, Scrooge was also falling in love with Joanna, and the two developed a strong relationship over the years. It is unknown what happened to cause Cusack’s death in the second film of the series, but it was widely assumed that it was the result of Scrooge poisoning her, and filling her body with poisonous gasses.
Following the conclusion of the first part of the original storyline, “A Fish Called Wanda”, the third part of the original tale began chronicling the adventures of Miss March and her faithful assistant, Bob Cratchit, as they journeyed across the countryside in search of the legendary pirate Captain Hook. With the assistance of a loyal band of pirates, including a few members of the Dauntless Three, the three heroes had their quest answered and were introduced to an entirely new world, filled with dangerous villains and strange magic. While the second part of the story was focused on the search for the captain, the third had a much larger impact on the lives of the characters and showed what would happen to them in the future. After finding the pirate captain, the trio escaped to the shores of America, where they discovered that Scrooge had died and that his ghost possessed the sword “Hooks” in order to protect them.
Overall, “A Fish called Wanda” is a great film directed by Henry Selick and starring Joanna Cesack. Although the story is only eleven minutes long, it is filled with charming humor and excellent storylines. The colorful costumes, unique visual effects, and perfectly timed musical cues help make this film one that children of all ages will enjoy. If you like your family movies lighthearted and happy-go-lucky, then this is a great choice for your next movie!
