Shelley Winters, who started out in movies as a blonde bombshell and enjoyed a long career playing overweight, overbearing characters, died Saturday in Beverly Hills following a heart attack in October. Her age was variously listed as between 82 and 85 in news reports. She won best-supporting-actress Oscars for 1959's The Diary of Anne Frank and 1965's A Patch of Blue. She was nominated for best actress for 1951's A Place in the Sun and for best supporting actress in 1972's The Poseidon Adventure.
