Director Robert Altman discovered the gifted Shelley Duvall while she was attending college in Houston, TX and promptly cast her in her debut film "Brewster McCloud" (1970). She went on to make seven movies in all with Altman, from the sublimely brilliant "Nashville" (1975) and "3 Women" (1977), for which she won both a Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Award and an L.A. Film Critic's Association Award, to "Popeye" (1980), in which she starred as Olive Oyl opposite Robin Williams. Duvall showed herself particularly adept at playing kooky waifs and characters for whom everything goes wrong, like the trusting wife of Jack Nicholson's deteriorating writer in Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" (1980). Among her many fine performances for television was her role in Joan Micklin Silver's "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" for PBS' "Great American Short Story" series, considered by many the best adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald to the screen.
