Shelley Winters was a really good actress and starred in too many good movies to list.

Shelley, you were one of the greats. You will be missed.

LITTLE KOJAKDec 30, 2012

I agree with JOE_CAPRIO_CITYLIFEP below that she wasn't the most beautiful actress in Hollywood.
Btu she made up for it with a great sense of humor and a great bod that made me sit up and take notice.
She was really talented.
