Shelley Winters: 8/18/20-1/14/06

I’ve had the luck to meet and write about a variety of astonishing people. In 1993, one of my assignments for the Chicago Tribune’s Tempo section took me into a satellite of the legendary Actors Studio being conducted at Washington University, my alma mater.  I knew Shelley Winters was talented, often underestimated by the Poseidon Adventure generation. I didn’t realize until then just how skilled she was as an actress and teacher. How I envied those students.

I’ve uploaded the text of the resulting article. The formatting isn’t fancy. Then again, neither was Shelley Winters.
