Who can be romantically linked to Shelley Winters...and how closely?
In Italy, most of her films were dubbed by either Lidia Simoneschi, Dhia Cristiani or Rosetta Calavetta. She was once dubbed by Wanda Tettoni in Cry of the City (1948) and once by Miranda Bonansea in Behave Yourself! (1951). Gabriella Genta lent her voice to Winters in the role of Belle Rosen in The Poseidon Adventure (1972).
On the 6 July, 1972 episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" (1962), she grew tired of Oliver Reed's attitude towards women. They had a heated conversation and, after Winters told Reed what she thought of his opinions, she left the set. The show continued with Reed going on about women while Johnny Carson looked at him in a daze. Shortly afterward, Winters appeared from stage left, unannounced to Reed and to the shock of Carson. She was carrying a champagne bucket of ice and water and surprised Reed by dumping it over his head. Reed was furious over this and tried to attack her but crew members intervened. The show broke for commercial break. When it resumed, both actors were gone.

Tony Curtis, 84, has written his autobiography, “American Prince,” in which he details his impoverished childhood, a physically abusive mother and cold father, his five marriages, alienation from his children, the deaths of his younger brother and his youngest son, the decline of his acting career, and his past cocaine and sex addictions.
Wow. It’s a miracle he had the time or energy to star in such classics as Some Like It Hot, The Outsider, Sweet Smell of Success, Spartacus and The Defiant Ones, which earned him an Oscar nomination for lead actor.... Read More
