RIP Jennifer Jones (1919-2009)
I can’t take this. First Richard Todd, now Jennifer Jones. These two better not be forgotten at the Oscars In Memoriam. You know how they left out uber-important people like Dorothy McGuire and Anita Page previously. Such cretins with no respect for Hollywood history!
I’ve never been a Jennifer Jones fan but I love Duel in the Sun aka Lust in the Dust. What an amazing film! It has one of the most memorable cinematic endings I’ve ever scene. Personally I think her role as the Eurasian, Han Suyin nee Rosalie Elisabeth Kuanghu Chow, in Love is a Many- Splendor Thing should be remade but keep the song.
How could Jennifer Jones have dumped Robert Walker though? I suppose her second husband David O. Selznick had the money and/or was better in bed because Robert Walker was such a handsome and great actor.
While she wasn’t my favorite actress, I still want to see her in Cluny Brown.
Nice clip from Duel in the Sun
