Shelley Winters RIP

Two-time Oscar winner dies

Shelley Winters might have been best known - and Oscar nominated - for her role in The Poseidon Adventure, but there was far more to her career than that, including two Academy Award wins. She won them in 1960 for The Diary Of Anne Frank and 1965’s A Patch Of Blue.

She was also famous for a string of romances with some of Hollywood’s most eligible leading men, including Clark Gable and Errol Flynn. In a career spanning six decades, she was once a roommate with Marilyn Monroe and has appeared in such films as Stanley Kubrick’s Lolita, the original Alfie alongside Michael Caine and The Night Of The Hunter, with Robert Mitchum.

She died on Saturday from heart failure at the age of 85.
