Shelly Winters has left us

I just saw on MSN that Shelly Winters has passed away. She will be known to all Elvis fans who have seen the 1979 TV movie "Elvis" starring Kurt Russel as Elvis. Ms. Winters played the part of Gladys Presley. She was a funny lady who will be missed.

Shelly had a great sense of humor and was a beautiful woman. We have an old movie, "Odds Against Tomorrow," with the young Shelly. She was a good actress whom we shall miss!

I'll always remember her as the older woman in the original version of Alfie & as Ma Parker in the Batman television series.

A lovely lady who will be sadly missed.

Shelly Winters was a fine actress. There was a great scene in 'Elvis' where she throws the housing authority guy out by saying "Get on outta here with the rest of the dirt!"
RIP Shelly Winters.

Shelly was one of 'the old school' of actresses !

I first noticed her in A Place In The Sun [1951], where the leads were played by Mongomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor.

She sure was a fine actress.

She also knew the real Elvis a bit. She even peddled a story of Elvis going out to marry Natalie Wood and being stopped by the Colonel.

She is one of those people you assumed would always be around. A constant presence in my youth as she was frequently on game and talk shows in the 70s and 80s. She was in quite a few good movies in her career including "Night of the Hunter", "Poseidon", "Lolita" and "A Place in the Sun" and some great exploitation schlock as well like "Who Slew Auntie Roo" and "The Iniation of Sarah". Sad to see her go.
