Oscar Winner Shelley Winters Dies
Shelley Winters, who started out in movies as a blonde bombshell and enjoyed a
long career playing overweight, overbearing characters, died Saturday in
Beverly Hills following a heart attack in October. Her age was variously listed
as between 82 and 85 in news reports. She won best-supporting-actress Oscars
for 1959's The Diary of Anne Frank and 1965's A Patch of Blue.
She was nominated for best actress for 1951's A Place in the Sun and for
best supporting actress in 1972's The Poseidon Adventure.
