Nice for the Original television movie collector!MORE INFO ON SHIRLEY JONES: Shirley Mae Jones (born March 31, 1934) is an American singer and actress of stage, film and television. She starred as wholesome characters in a number of well-known musical films, such as Oklahoma!, Carousel, and The Music Man. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for playing a prostitute in Elmer Gantry. She is probably best known as Shirley Partridge, the widowed mother of five children in the sitcom/television series, The Partridge Family, co-starring her real-life stepson David Cassidy, son of Jack CassidyJones was born in Charleroi, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh, to Marjorie Williams, a strict strong-minded homemaker, and Paul Jones, owners of the Jones Brewing Company. An only child, she was named after Shirley Temple. The family later moved to nearby Smithton, Pennsylvania. Jones could sing almost as soon as she could speak. Encouraged by her summer camp counselors, her family arranged for teenaged Shirley to study twice a week, in Pittsburgh, with the world-renowned singer and teacher, Ralph Lawando. Afterwards, she frequently joined her father for a show at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, where she fell in love with the musical theater.In Manhattan, one of Shirley's friends convinced her to sing for a Broadway agent, Gus Sherman. Sherman was pleased to put Jones under contract, and with her parents' approval, she resettled in New York and gave herself one year to become a Broadway performer. She only had $100 in her pocket. If she didn't succeed, she would move back to Smithton and work as a veterinarian. Her first audition was for a replacement chorus girl in the long-running musical, South Pacific. Rodgers and Hammerstein, writers of South Pacific, saw great potential in Shirley. She became the first and only singer to be put under personal contract with the songwriters. The duo cast her in her second Broadway show, Me and Juliet. On tour, she understudied the lead and earned rave reviews.Jones impressed Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II with her musically-trained voice and was cast as the female lead in the film adaptation of their hit play Oklahoma! in 1955. Other musicals quickly followed, including Carousel (1956), April Love (1957) and The Music Man (1962), in which she was often typecast as a wholesome, kind character. However, she won a 1960 Oscar for her performance in Elmer Gantry as a woman corrupted by the title character played by Burt Lancaster. Jones' character becomes a prostitute who encounters her seducer years later and takes her revenge. She was reunited with Ron Howard (who had played a role in The Music Man) in The Courtship of Eddie's Father in 1963. Jones landed the role of a lady who fell in love with the professor in Fluffy (1965). In addition, she also has an impressive stage resume, including playing the title character in the Broadway musical Maggie Flynn in 1968.As a teenager, Jones made her debut on an episode of Fireside Theatre. The part led to other roles such as: Gruen Guild Playhouse, Ford Star Jubilee, Playhouse 90, Lux Video Theatre, The United States Steel Hour, The DuPont Show of the Month, Make Room for Daddy, where she played herself, The Comedy Spot, Bob Hope Presents the Chrysler Theatre, The Name of the Game, McMillan and Wife, Disneyland, The Love Boat, Hotel, Murder, She Wrote, Melrose Place, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, among many others.In 1970, after her film roles dwindled, and for turning down the role of Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch, which ultimately gave the role to fellow actress, Florence Henderson, Jones was more than happy to be the producers' first choice to audition for the lead role of Shirley Partridge, in The Partridge Family, a sitcom based on the real-life musical family, The Cowsills, for ABC. The show focused on a young widowed mother, whose five children form a pop/rock group, after the entire family painted its signature bus to travel. She was convinced that the combination of music and comedy would be a surefire hit. Jones realized however that:During its first season it became a hit, and was screened in over 70 countries. Within months, Jones and her co-stars were pop culture TV icons. Her real-life twenty-year-old stepson David Cassidy, who was an unknown actor at the time, was playing Shirley Partridge's eldest son, Keith, became the hottest teen idol in the country. The show itself also spawned a number of records and songs, performed by David and Shirley. That same year, "I Think I Love You" reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart.While enjoying playing Shirley Partridge, Jones was in a real-life crisis with her emotionally-troubled husband. This sitcom also starred a lot of unknown actors and/or actresses, such as ex-model Susan Dey as the eldest daughter and second child, Laurie, future radio personality Danny Bonaduce as sarcastic son, Danny, and future bookstore manager Suzanne Crough as the youngest daughter and child, Tracy. Jeremy Gelbwaks played the original Chris Partridge, but left the show after the first season because his parents were moving to another state. Future race car driver Brian Forster replaced him during the series' second season in 1971.By 1974, the ratings had sunk low, David Cassidy finally had enough of playing Keith Partridge, and one of his teenage fans had died of a heart failure from injuries sustained while attending one of his concerts. The Partridge Family was dropped from the prime-time line-up after four seasons and 96 episodes. Jones was outraged about the series' cancellation and she held the show together. In fact, it was one of the six series to be cancelled that year, along with Room 222, The F.B.I., The Brady Bunch, Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law, and Here's Lucy, to make room for new shows.Shirley Jones' friendship with David Cassidy's family began in the mid-to-late 1950s, when David was just 6, after he learned about his father's divorce from his mother Evelyn Ward, before remarrying Shirley. Upon David's first meeting with Shirley before co-starring with her on The Partridge Family, he said, "The day he tells me that they're divorced, he tells me, 'We're remarried, and let me introduce you to my new wife.' He was thrilled her first movie, Oklahoma! (1955), had come out; and my dad took me to see it - I just see her, and I go, uh-oh, it doesn't really quite register with me, 'cause I'm in total shock, because I wanted to hate her, but, the instant that I met her, I got the essence of her. She's a very warm open, sweet good human being. She couldn't have thought of me in the coldness of the ice, anymore than she did." Shirley was shocked to hear her real-life stepson was going to audition for the role of Keith Partridge. David said, "At the auditions, they introduced me to the lead actress (Shirley Jones), cause they had no idea, they had no idea. So I said, 'What are you doing here?' She looked at me and said, 'What are you doing here?' And I said, 'Well, I'm reading for the lead guy.' I said, 'What are you doing here?' She said, 'I'm the mother!'" Cassidy discussed his relationship with his stepmother on the show: "She wasn't my mother, and I can be very open, and we can speak, and became very close friends for me. She was a very good role model for me, watching the way, you know, she dealt with people on the set, and watching people revere her." After the show's cancellation, Cassidy remained very close to his half-brothers and the rest of his Partridge Family castmates, especially Shirley.Cassidy appeared on many shows alongside his stepmother, in addition to A&E Biography, such as TV Land Confidential, The Today Show, one of the presenters of his stepmother's Intimate Portrait on Lifetime Television, and the defunct reality show, In Search of the Partridge Family, where he served as co-executive producer. The rest of the cast also celebrated the 25th, 30th and the 35th anniversary of The Partridge Family (although Cassidy was unavailable to attend the 25th anniversary in 1995, due to other commitments). In addition, Jack Cassidy's death in 1976 drew Jones and Cassidy closer, as Shirley's three children and stepson mourned their father.Shirley tried her hand at television for the second time starring in Shirley, but failed to win ratings. Jones also played the "older woman" girlfriend of Drew Carey's character in several episodes of The Drew Carey Show.She also won fans in the memorable dramatic project, There Were Times, Dear, in which she played a loyal wife, whose husband is dying of Alzheimer's Disease; she was nominated for an Emmy for this work.In February 1986, Shirley Jones unveiled her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Vine Street just around the corner from Hollywood Boulevard.Jones had a stellar turn in a rare revival of Noel Coward's operetta Bitter Sweet at the Long Beach Civic Light Opera in 1983. In 2004, Shirley returned to Broadway in a revival of 42nd Street, portraying diva "Dorothy B
