Tough broad dies

I neglected to mention yesterday that Shelley Winters died over the weekend.

What a great actress. Check out A Patch of Blue sometime if you don't believe me.

There's a story that people tell in Hollywood, that Winters came in to meet with a director about a part in a movie. In the meeting, she was asked to audition for the role - a request that many established actors would have found insulting.

The story goes that she pulled her Oscar out of her handbag, set it down on the director's desk, and said "That's my audition."

Then she pulled her other Oscar out of her handbag, set that down, and said "And that's my callback."
