Re: Jennifer Jones.
"In her prime, Jennifer Jones’ affinity for high-strung, depressed women led to an Academy Award and an additional four nominations in the Forties and Fifties. Filmgoers did not have an inkling that she brought much of herself to these roles until November 9, 1967, when the actress--after checking into a motel and taking an overdose of pills--was found unconscious at the foot of a 400-foot cliff on Malibu Beach.
Jones survived her suicide attempt, going on to live another 32 years. But it wasn’t her first or last brush with tragedy..."
Possibly in a notebook somewhere.
