Favorite Actor Monday: Day Late and Dollar Short Edition

Shelley Duvall looks like a real person, and happened to start working in Hollywood the first year of the last decade in which that was possible: 1970. She's so damned interesting to watch. People always mention Kubrick and Nicholson when they talk about "The Shining" but what about Shelley Duvall?

McCabe & Mrs. Miller (Robert Altman, 1971)
Nashville (Robert Altman, 1975)
Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull's History Lesson (Robert Altman, 1976)
3 Women (Robert Altman, 1977)
Annie Hall (Woody Allen, 1977)
The Shining (Stanley Kubrick, 1980)
Popeye (Robert Altman, 1980)
Time Bandits (Terry Gilliam, 1981)
Frankenweenie (Tim Burton, 1984)
Roxanne (Fred Schepisi, 1987)
The Underneath (Steven Soderbergh, 1995)

I haven't seen "Brewster McCloud," "Thieves Like Us," "The Portrait of a Lady," and "Twilight of the Ice Nymphs" yet, which explains their absence.
