Concerning her professional career, initially she had minor success in comedies and musicals on Broadway, where she was also a member of the Actors Studio. In 1943, she debuted on the big screen in the film “There’s Something About a Soldier”. In the late 1940s, her breakthrough came starring in the thriller “A Double Life” (1947) by George Cukor. Meanwhile, she also rose to fame on Broadway, with the leading role in the successful musical “Oklahoma!” This was followed by larger roles in the thriller “Cry of the City” (1948) alongside Victor Mature, then in 1950 portraying the female lead in Anthony Mann’s western “Winchester ’73”. Moreover, she starred in the award winning melodrama “A Place in the Sun” (1951) with Montgomery Clift” in the role of a seduced factory worker. Afterwards, she portrayed very different character roles, for example an aspiring actress in the drama “Phone Call from a Stranger” (1952), a wife of the suspect in the western “Saskatchewan” (1954), and the naïve widow of an executed murderer in the thriller “The Night of the Hunter” (1955). Her net worth was growing steadily.

The Oscar for the Best Supporting Actress she won for her portrayal of Auguste van Daan in “The Diary of Anne Frank” (1959) directed by George Stevens, and a second Oscar she received for her representation of a prostitute in “A Patch of Blue” (1965). Despite her film successes she always came back to the theatre, to star in such plays as in the world premiere of “The Night of the Iguana” by Tennessee Williams, and the musical “Minnie’s Boys”. Other major film roles were as Charlotte Haze-Humbert in Stanley Kubrick’s film “Lolita” (1962), and Ruby in the romantic comedy drama film “Alfie” (1966) directed by Lewis Gilbert. In 1972, she won a Golden Globe Award for portraying Belle Rosen in “The Poseidon Adventure”. Later, she was seen as an evil adoptive mother in “Pete’s Dragon” (1977). To add more, she played the wife of Martin Balsam in the Chuck Norris movie “Delta Force” (1982), in addition, she appeared in numerous guest roles on television, including a recurring role in the sitcom “Roseanne”. Her last appearance was in the Italian film “La Bomba” (1999).

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, Shelley Winters was married four times, firstly to the Mayor of Chicago Mack Paul, then the actor Vittorio Gassman, actor Anthony Franciosa, and finally Gerry DeFord, who married her a few hours before her death. There were also rumours about her relationships and possible affairs with actors Errol Flynn, William Holden, Burt Lancaster, Sean Connery and Marlon Brando. The actress died on the 14th January 2006 at the age of 85 in the rehabilitation centre in Beverly Hills. Her final resting place is in the Hillside Memorial Park in Culver City, California.

The show continued with Reed going on about women while Johnny Carson looked at him in a daze. Shortly afterward, Winters appeared from stage left, unannounced to Reed and to the shock of Carson.

Quotes

#Quote
1Every now and then, when you're onstage, you hear the best sound a player can hear. It's a sound you can't get in movies or in television. It is the sound of a wonderful, deep silence that means you've hit them where they live.
2After three times, I realize marriage is not for me. Not for me. I love to get married, you know, but I don't like to be married. You go away on a honeymoon, you have a great time, you come home, they want to come in the house!
3[In a 1980 interview] Jean Arthur was ALWAYS my favorite actress when I was a kid. And I love Bette Davis for a very peculiar reason. Bette Davis is not afraid to stink! There are these careful actresses who look pretty, and they're never bad, they're never great. But Bette Davis goes; she'll take chances. I love to watch her on the set. Sometimes it's awful, but sometimes it's FANTASTIC!
4[on Norman Mailer] Norman's not capable of sleeping with a starlet and using her and then just saying "That was great, kid. Goodbye." Unlike most men in Hollywood, he's actually a feminist. He sees women as people, not just sex objects. He reveres women. He feels there's kind of respect they must have.
5[on her role in A Patch of Blue (1965)] Can you imagine me using words like "nigger" and "wop"? I've always found something to like in the characters I've played, but not this time. I really hate this woman. She blinds her daughter by accident when she was trying to blind her husband. And when the girl grows up, she beats her. How's that for a role?
6[on Marlon Brando in the stage production of A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)] There was an electrical charge and almost an animal scent he projected over the footlights that made it impossible for the audience to think or watch the other performers on the stage. All you could do was feel, the sexual arousal was so complete. I don't believe that quality can be learned; it's just there, primitive and compelling. The only time I experienced a similar reaction was when I saw Elvis Presley perform in Las Vegas.
7(on Robert Taylor who was her co-star in A House Is Not a Home (1964)) He was the sweetest man to work with. By that I mean he was cooperative and understanding in contrast to most leading men today, who try to either elbow you out of camera range or are off in a corner somewhere practicing 'Method acting'.
8[on Oscar Levant] A tortured man who sprayed his loathing on anyone within range.
9[on Robert De Niro] Bobby needs someone to watch over him. He doesn't even know enough to wear a coat in the wintertime. When we did Bloody Mama (1970) he didn't even know how much money they were paying him. I found out how little it was and insisted they at least give him some expense money.
10[on Anthony Franciosa] I'll never forget the night I brought my Oscar home and Tony took one look at it and I knew my marriage was over.
11[on director George Stevens] George photographs what goes on in the air between people.
12[on Joanne Woodward] Joanne always made it her business to hold back her career while Paul Newman was on the up and up. And that girl is one helluva talented actress. But she knew what side her bread was buttered on and let Paul become the superstar of the family. The result? They're still happily married today.
13I think on-stage nudity is disgusting, shameful and damaging to all things American. But if I were 22 with a great body, it would be artistic, tasteful, patriotic and a progressive religious experience.
14It's sad that people are so open about their sexuality. Sex is much more fun when you have to sneak around and cover it up.
15My face was always so made up, it looked as though it had the decorators in.
16Anna Magnani could act anybody off the stage or screen.
17[on Fredric March] He was able to do a very emotional scene with tears in his eyes, and pinch my fanny at the same time.
18(her career-longevity advice) You gotta play mothers. If you don't, you won't get a long career in Hollywood.
19I have bursts of being a lady, but it doesn't last long.
20I had to gain forty pounds for this movie.
21The best way to find out about a man is to have lunch with his ex-wife
22I did a picture in England one winter and it was so cold I almost got married.
23In Hollywood, all the marriages are happy. It's trying to live together afterwards that causes all the problems.
