Shirley Jones

We kick off Oscar Week here on Now I’ve Heard E verything with an interview from 2013.

Long before the world knew her as “Shirley Partridge,” Shirley Jones was an accomplished singer and actress.

In 1960 she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as a prostitute in the film “Elmer Gantry.”

Much of her 2013 memoir was about her private life, including details of her love life with her two great loves, actor Jack Cassidy and actor-comedian Marty Ingels.

Shirley Jones will be 86 years old in March.

Marty Ingels died in 2015. Jones’s stepson David Cassidy died in 2017.
