Shelley Winters on Charlotte Haze
Every once in a while, an actor or actress will show great
intelligence and perceptiveness about their performances. I was
impressed what Shelley Winters had to say in describing the character
her performance brought to life:

She is dumb and cunning, silly, sad, sexy, and bizarre, and totally
American and human. ... Stanley Kubrick had the insight to find the
areas of me that were pseudointellectual and pretentious. We all have
those things in us."

What a dame!
