Product Overview

This bio-bibliography focuses on the life and career of Jennifer Jones, an actress as well known for her marriage to David O. Selznick as she is for her performances. As a research tool for those interested in an academic study and reevaluation of her career, however, this work looks at Jones not as the wife and protegee of Selznick but as an individual with a unique and accomplished acting style. In surveying the history of the relationship with Selznick, and covering the 23 feature films and one serial appearance that make up the career of Jennifer Jones, Jeffrey Carrier has separated the performances from the Selznick influence and discovered a talent that is often surprising. The book provides a complete view of the professional life of Jennifer Jones, from her earliest screen appearance in 1939 to her current activities with charitable organizations. It is comprised of seven major sections: a detailed biography; a chronology that summarizes the highlights of her life; a complete filmography that includes casts and credits, synopses, release dates, running times, selected reviews, and sources for study; a listing of radio, theater, and television appearances; awards and nominations; an annotated bibliography; and a complete cross-referenced index. An accompanying appendix contains the New York Times obituaries for Robert Walker and David O. Selznick. This important attempt to reexamine the career of Jennifer Jones will be a valuable reference source for courses in film history and for film fans and scholars, as well as a notable addition to both academic and public libraries.
