Shelley Winters

US actress Shelley Winters dies at 85

Her Charlotte Haze in Kubrick's "Lolita" was closer to the impression I got from Humbert Humbert's mix of pity and disgust than anything Melanie Griffith could even begin to embody.

I also remember when I first watched "The Night of the Hunter" when I was first 12. It didn't scare, but unsettled me. Especially because I was watching it around 2 or 3 in the morning when everyone else was asleep. It's still one of my favorite movies because it stayed with me in the back of my head until this day.
