I wouldn’t have known this except that she was mentioned on a Legacy.com page with Brittany Murphy.
She won best actress for The Song of Bernadette, and could’ve won worst actress for Duel in the Sun, but they didn’t have the Razzies back then.
She was David O Selznick’s mistress during the filming of Duel in the Sun.
You gotta wonder about a guy who lets his mistress’ character as a sexpot in a movie he’s producing describe herself onscreen as, “…trash, trash, trash, trash, trash!!”
For you disaster movie buffs out there, Jennifer Jones is the woman who falls out of the glass elevator in The Towering Inferno.
(You know you’re old when you’re typing a tribute like this, and you change “…for you youngsters out there…” to “…for you disaster movie buffs out there…” because you just realized that the youngsters out there might never even heard of The Towering Inferno. Sigh.)
Jennifer Jones was 90 years old. About the same age I feel right now typing that last comment.
