Wonderful actress, beautiful face
Jennifer Jones was always one of my favorites and a true beauty. I'm sorry at her passing, although she lived a long and productive life. Whenever I see one of her movies, I think of my mother, (born the same year as JJ), because my mom loved her and was her favorite actress. I am now renting a lot of the movies I hadn't seen before, and I believe she is an excellent actress who led a gypsy lifestyle as a young girl growing up. Love Madam Bovary. I do feel she's underrated and somewhat forgotten, which makes me a little angry (only 3 pages here) but I think that comes with living a long life and your career is long in the past. I hope TCM will show some of her movies (different ones) on her b-day March 2nd. Rest in Peace, Miss Jones, you are not forgotten. Hope the Oscars do something nice.
Thanks for the memories.

Thank you for your wonderful tribute to Jennifer Jones on Thursday, Jan. 7. I hope that you will continue to play her films from time to time. This writer became an instant fan upon seeing her for the first time in Song of Bernadette and remained one for her entire career. Sadly, except for obit notices in the papers, her passing has gone moslty unnoticed by other publications. Her talent and contributions to the film industry as well as her charitable work should never be forgotten. To use an overworked phrase, "they don't mak'em like that anymore!"
A natural beauty
One of the loveliest and most talented women to ever grace the screen. Her range can be seen in such varied characters as : St. Bernadette, Pearl Chavez, and Dr. Han Suyin. Rest in peace lovely one.
Nice memorial clips of Jennifer Jones
Thanks to TCM for a nice collection of film clips showing Jennifer Jones in their memorial of her. What would have been perfect would be to show a clip from "Song of Bernadette", her only Academy Award performance.
Great Actress, Beautiful Woman

Versitile and Unforgettable...
- Paul Meyer
Jennifer Jones brought a variety of characters to life and made them unforgettable. In the last five minutes of Man in the Gray Flannel Suit, she says little but speaks volumes. With a gesture or facial expression, she can convey an unfathomable range of emotions. In Portrait of Jenny, she cast a spell on the viewer as well as her co-star's character. Along with Joseph Cotton's character, the viewer anxiously awaits her next appearance in the film. As with all great art, the effect of Jennifer Jone's finest performances is profound and indelible.
Jennifer Jones: An Original!
- Michael J. McCabe
Although Miss Jones won her Academy Award for THE SONG OF BERNADETTE, she transcended the typecasting that could have resulted from her performance as Bernadette Soubirous. Undoubtedly this is the hallmark of an actress with tremendous range both histrionically and intellectually. I find Jennifer Jones to be such a gifted actress. The manner in which she used her voice to communicate a palette of emotions is only one indication of her formidable talent. I love her performances -- she always acted with honesty and revealed the truth within the character she portrayed. And I certainly miss her from the screen. Miss Jones is singular, unique, fascinating.
