RIP Shelley Winters

Oscar winner Shelley Winters has died at age 85.

Winters was in some films I absolutely adore—A Place in the Sun, The Diary of Anne Frank, A Patch of Blue—but my all-time favorite film of hers is The Poseidon Adventure.

She had one of those personalities people either love or hate. I happened to love it. She was a great actress as well as an opinionated and vocal feminist, and I just always thought she was utterly fabulous, both onscreen and off. A most excellent, excellent broad.

I have bursts of being a lady, but it doesn’t last long. — Shelley Winters
