As mentioned in Winters’s first win for “The Diary of Anne Frank,” Shelley has played a hooker five times. Including winning an Oscar for playing a prostitute in “A Patch of Blue.” As the ultimate mother from hell, this character abuses her blind daughter by day and turns tricks by night. Things get worse for the daughter when Shelley’s character finds out she is seeing a black man, which ruins her plans to pimp out her blind daughter out to potential johns.
