Festival to bestow honor of a lifetime on Winters

SHARE Festival to bestow honor of a lifetime on Winters

Shelley Winters' half-century of work will bring her a lifetime achievement award from the Hollywood Film Festival on Aug. 10.

"Throughout her life and career, she has shared her knowl-edge with embryonic talent, dedicating her time teaching the craft of acting," organizer Carlos de Abreu said Monday. "Her professional body of work is a great example of what emerging filmmakers should follow."After work in theater and supporting roles, she played the factory worker seduced by Montgomery Clift in "A Place in the Sun" (1951), the mother in the original version of "Lolita" (1962), and won two Oscars - in "The Diary of Anne Frank" (1960) and "A Patch of Blue" (1966).

"I am most happy to receive this award," Winters said. "I hope my body of work reflects this wonderful honor."
