HOLLYWOOD (NBA)—it happened at the annual Hollywood Pres. Photograph*™ costume ball. - Hollywood aUra weru Invited to ./com* drewed x their suppressed ;jljleslre«. There was »n uninspired ^collection of p4rat«, army generals and football alars, 11th Century eourte*ans, * couple of Florence Nightingale* and a Little Ml-* Muttet. And there was Mucy, sassy, sexy Shelley Winters! Shelley, who has the kind of a shape the world should be In, was clad in bl»ck-lace tlghls and bodice and a purple-trimmed leotard. There 1 was * halo over her head and she wan carrying a harp! "I'm a sexy ange), 1 explained Shelley, who has the title of Hollywood's sexiest ilren. "No matter how hard I try to be angelic, the wickedness in me takes over." Hollywood — In the midst of a campaign to convince the U. S. that movie stars ire Just like your next door neighbors and folksy as »pple pie—gasped and blushed. But next day, when they uw Shelley'i "aexy angel" photograph In all the newspapers, movlepoers all over America nudged each olh- er and said: "Hey, there's a MOVIE STAR by herkl" There's no mistaking hlp-fllp- plng Shelley Winters for the girl next door or somebody's secretary, She's Jn the same temperamental finger-snapping, tiger-skin rug league made famous by Thccta Bara, Mae Murray. Gloria Swanson, Mae West and Jean Harlow. Tlie fan magazines have dubbed Shelley "the most temperamental star In Hollywood". She's bombastic and magnetic and natural. She's impulsive and flamboyant, unpredictable and battling, scatter-brained and witty. She's volatile and wacky, warm-hearted and generous, she's slangy and uninhibited and sincere. She Becomes Legend Wilhin two years after her film click is the sexy waitress Ronald Colman; strangled in "A Double Life" she was a Hollywood legend. She aclmist she's temperamental but defends herself'claiming-. "I'm not temperamental about the size of my dressing room or the color of my director's hair I have arguments only about scenes and my acting. 1 want to make my pictures and my acting better.

I found th« Pot of Gold I wasn't looking for" McCrea Would Explain ' Only one fellow co-.tar, Joel McCrea, has ever'dared trying to explain Shelley Winters. Sayjjoel- "Shelley fights the wrong war 'or the right things. The trouble with her Is that she has an Inarticulate approach. She smells a mous, and knows something |* wront but can't put her finger on It" ' About being "inarticulate" Shelley herself walls: "I get carried away with the sound of my own mouth. I'm al- vyays saying 'the wrong things I talk too much. I'm the kind ol a girl who walks up to a big 'movie producer and asks him what, he does to earn his pay checks." As the rtrab factory girl In Paramount's "A Place In the Sun", sh« ••pened the orbs of everyone to the fact that she-could act and probably will be nominated for an Oscar Then she popped up as a .com- inedfenne In "Behave- y&i'irsejf" Now- she's .surprising- 'Hollywood asain with a singing-'role In "Meet Danny Wilson".- ' Explaining'this versatility, shel- ley wink's and says: "I Invented myself — and I'm still inventing." Then she adds a serious note: "Really, people don't realize how hard I've worked'and studied." That first real chance at acting in "A Place In the Sun" convinced Shelley she should have a "dignity" campaign. Press agents «t Universal - International studio where she's under contract, were briefed to soft-pedal the glamour publicity. Shelley even went to a psychiatrist: "He promised me dignity or my money back. I got my money back." The dignity campaign was forgotten- even before the film's release and now Shelley wails: . "Dignity? I've tried H. It lasted two days. People started asking me if I was ill." . Slack* and Evening Gowni Off the screen she's "a slacks -«nd evening gown girl. In slacks I disillusion people by being a human being. I guess they expect sex on wheels. But when I dress UB to kill—I km ;em." But even In her off-screen slacks, sweater and bandana. Shelley Is an exciting personality and she knows it. 'A studio waitress who saw her without makeup one morn- Ing said: "Ho*v-y, this morning your face Is like a sexy bowl of cereal." Says Shelley: "I'm the type of a girl who makes wives mad.
