Joan Crawford was on the board of directors at Pepsi when she met Col. Harland Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Fans of KFC will note that the restaurants serve Pepsi products, not Coke’s. But don’t jump to conclusions! In 1969, when this photo was taken, Crawford and the Colonel were both more about public relations than business. Sanders had sold his company several years before.
