Oscar winner Jennifer Jones dead at 90

LOS ANGELES - LOS ANGELES (AP) — A publicist says Jennifer Jones, who was nominated for Academy Awards five times and won for her portrayal of a saintly nun in "The Song of Bernadette," has died at age 90.

Leslie Denk, spokeswoman for the Norton Simon Museum, says Jones died Thursday at her home in Malibu. Her only son, Robert Walker, was at her side.

Jones, the widow of museum founder Norton Simon, was deeply involved in overseeing the Simon during her later years.

She was one of Hollywood's biggest stars in the 1940s and '50s, appearing in such films as "Duel in the Sun," ''Love is a Many-Splendored Thing" and "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit."
