Description

Jennifer Jones was an Academy Award winning actress who starred in many classic films from the golden age of Hollywood. She was also known for an off-screen life which included bouts of emotional instability; a first marriage to Robert Walker, a second marriage to the Svengali-like David O. Selznick  and a third marriage to another larger-than-life figure, Norton Simon. She was notoriously shy, but had a passion for acting. This talk is a tribute for the hundredth anniversary of her birth.
