Jennifer Jones fans

Recommended Posts

I must agree with mrs0321- "Love Letters" has always been one of my favorite films. Jennifer Jones always worked well with Joseph Cotten (the best actor who never received an Academy Award nomination). A moving script by Ayn Rand and a beautiful score by composer Victor Young. The title song has always been the favorite of my wife and I for over 50 years.

Jennifer Jones was not only a well-known actress but had married quite well. After Selznick, she married Norton Simon (or Simon Norton?) and had been active on the board of the museum of the same name. She had quite a life.

"*Portrait of Jennie*" (1948) is my favorite film of all-time.


"*Love Letters*" (1945) is in my top ten list.


"*Indiscretion of An American Wife*" (1954), "*Good Morning Miss Dove*" and "*Madame Bovary*" are other big favorites.


She's definitely one of my top actresses ;)

Hi Theresa,


I'm glad to hear that! ;)


Don't you think that the ball sequence in "Madame Bovary" (1949) is one of the most amazing ever filmed? Which is a credit to Minnelli's great talent, but also to Jennifer Jones' charisma, charm, acting ability and appeal.


On the other hand, I could watch "*Portrait of Jennie*" a thousand times and still discover new things and feel thrilled.

Hey, feaito, I don't want to beat CineMaven to your response, but that ballroom sequence IS one of the GREATEST scenes ever filmed. I finally got Madame Bovary, and it is truly great because of Jennifer Jones! It is one of my favorite costume

Yes, that ballroom scene is very dizzying and ooh lala.


My favorite of hers is "Love Letters." When her drunken bum of a husband throws the letters into the fireplace and she reaches in to pull them out...oh man, heartbreaking.


I'm a big fan of hers.
