She was the proverbial middle-American beauty made an overnight star by the smitten Hollywood big shot, and made good on it with five Oscar nominations and one statue. Only a few years after he had made Vivien Leigh the dark-horse victor of his Scarlett O'Hara sweepstakes, David O. Selznick unveiled Jennifer Jones as his latest discovery in "The Song of Bernadette" in 1943, an American film debut that, like Leigh's, would earn her the Best Actress accolade at the next year's Academy Awards. Selznick's dedication to Jones' career would make her a staple lead in star-helmed romances such as "Duel In the Sun" (1946), "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing" (1955) and "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit" (1956), as well the subject of the storied producer's own romantic zeal - yielding an enigmatic legacy of a movie star with a memorable body of work.
