As an aspiring actress, Phylis Lee Isley almost gave up on her dream, but her last shot at Hollywood ended up earning her an Oscar. Phylis Lee, as Jennifer Jones, stormed onto the silver screen in a blindingly brilliant performance in 1943’s The Song of Bernadette. She would go on to earn four more nominations, making her one of the most celebrated albeit overlooked actresses of her time. Although she avoided tabloid spotlight and the attention of the press, Jones continued to win prominent dramatic roles throughout the 1940s and 50s. Jones took a step back from Hollywood after her husband and champion, producer David O. Selznick, passed away, but she would return to the screen now and then to remind audiences of the great talent that almost went undiscovered.
