End Of Winters

The death of actress Shelley Winters ends a remarkable movie career, spanning several decades and a transition from blonde bombshell to plump brass.

Her performances in Lolita (1962) and Alfie (1966) are among my personal favourites.

She was less praiseworthy in real life - near-religious in her devotion to liberal politics, she'd revel in affairs with married men then dish the dirt in her biographies.

Ah, another great role model...
