Most of us on here probably best remember her in her final movie role as Lisolette Mueller (the woman who falls out of the glass/scenic elevator) in the 1974 film, The Towering Inferno; although her more famous films were made well before most of us (including myself) were alive.
LOS ANGELES - Jennifer Jones, 90, the beautiful, raven-haired actress nominated for Academy Awards five times, winning in 1943 for her portrayal of the title character in The Song of Bernadette, died yesterday.
After retiring from acting after The Towering Inferno, Ms. Jones avoided the limelight as much as possible.
She is survived by her son, Robert; eight grandchildren;and four great-grandchildren.
Not to sound heartless, but I thought she had already passed on years ago.
