R.I.P Jennifer Jones (1919-2009)

Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Jones died on Thursday in her Malibu home. She was one of the most underrated Oscar-winners ever, but thousands of fans and film lovers will miss her and cherish her memory. She won her very well-deserved Oscar for playing Saint Bernadette in The Song of Bernadette. She was nominated four other times, in 1944 for Since You Went Away (Best Supporting Actress), in 1946 for Love Letters, in 1946 for Duel in the Sun and in 1955 for Love is a Many-Splendored Thing and she should have been nominated for The Towering Inferno. She will be missed, may you rest in peace, Jennifer. You will be missed.

Jennifer Jones was truly a great actress. One of the movies I re-watch every once in a while is "Portrait of Jenny." She gave a terrific performance in it, along with the rest of the cast. It's one of the few sentimental movies I can stand to watch.
