Shirley Mae Jones net worth, biography & wiki:

Singer and actress Shirley Jones has appeared in over 100 films, plays and television shows and has a net worth of $25 million. Named after kid actress Shirley Temple, Jones’ lifelong career began on stage. Shirley Temple first cast was a minor role in South Pacific. It wasn’t long after that Shirley took the lead role in Romeo and Juliet, receiving raving reviews in Chicago. Jones quickly became the actress of the 50s, taking the lead character in prolific musicals, Oklahoma, Carousel, April Love and The Music Man.

Shirley Jones Net Worth $25 Million Dollars

By 1960, Jones received an Academy Awards for her performance in Elmer Gantry and through the decade, Jones continued to star in hit productions. By the 1970’s Jones made the Academy Awards transition to television to become the main cast of the hit TV sitcom, The Partridge Family. She portrayed Shirley Partridge, a widow of five children who began a band. The show co-starred her real life stepson David Cassidy. By the late 70s Jones had her own TV show entitled Shirley, which lasted one season. This did not dampened Jones’ career as she went on to star in notable productions as well as receiving the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1986. By the turn of the century, she returned to Broadway, starring in 42nd Street with her son Patrick Cassidy. More recently, Jones and son starred in the 2012 Californian Musical Theatre production of Musical Man.

Looks like we don't have Shirley Mae Jones salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1All though Oklahoma was her very first film, Shirley still regards legendary Austrian filmmaker Fred Zinnemann as the greatest director she ever had worked with.
2Married Jack Cassidy at the Protestant Church of New Jerusalem in Cambridge, MA, at 2:00 pm on August 6, 1956. Four hours later they performed the evening show of John Gay's "The Beggar's Opera" at the Sanders Theatre on the Harvard campus.
3Became pregnant by her husband Jack Cassidy soon after they married, but her agent persuaded her to have an abortion as her career had just taken off. Jones calls the termination the "biggest regret of my life".
4Was just four years older than Susan Luckey, who played her daughter in Carousel (1956).
5Knew David Cassidy when he was only 6.
6When her The Partridge Family (1970) and Florence Henderson's The Brady Bunch (1969) were ruling the prime time airwaves, the tabloids were hungry for any hint of a feud between the two stars. Howerver, since the two had been good friends since 1954, there was never any "feud" to be reported about.
7Her second husband, Marty Ingels, died on October 21, 2015. He lived to be 79.
8She was so heartbroken when she lost Suzanne Crough, on April 27, 2015. On- and off-camera, Jones had a very good relationship with her, while working on The Partridge Family (1970).
9Had screen-tested for the role of Kathy Selden in Singin' in the Rain (1952), but lost to Debbie Reynolds.
10For her role on The Partridge Family (1970) she had to drive the family "bus", which had a standard ("stick")-shift transmission with the gearshift on the floor; she only knew how to drive a car with an automatic transmission, so she had to learn how to drive a stick-shift, which she never really got the hang of. That made for a nerve-wracking experience for cast members who had to be in the bus when she was driving.
11Despite not being a lead vocalist, Jones was involved in every song of The Partridge Family (1970).
12She recorded two or three shows at once, in a session, usually about 6 songs, every weekend and/or evenings for The Partridge Family (1970).
13Had admitted that she had a crush on Gordon MacRae and was starstruck when she worked opposite him on Oklahoma! (1955). She said that she was the one who convinced him to take the part of Billy Bigelow in Carousel (1956). Frank Sinatra, who had originally been cast, suddenly dropped out during the first days of filming because each scene had to be shot twice, once in CinemaScope 55 (a wider-than-usual, 55mm, six-track stereo system) and once in 35mm CinemaScope. Sinatra felt that he should have been paid twice because technically he was shooting two films. Three weeks after he left, the producers found a way to film the scene once on 55mm, then transfer it onto 35mm.
14The song, "I Think I Love You," reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart, making her the second person, after Frank Sinatra, and the first woman, to win an acting Oscar and also have a #1 hit on that chart.
15Member of the Alzheimer's Foundation.
16Friends with: Angela Lansbury, Bea Arthur, Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds, Doris Roberts, Della Reese, Marla Gibbs, Charlotte Rae, Florence Henderson, Marty Ingels, Michael Landon, Karen Grassle, Harry Morgan, Alan Alda, Barbara Bel Geddes, Dick Van Dyke, Larry Hagman, Wink Martindale, Dick Van Patten, Mary Tyler Moore, James Garner, Bill Bixby, Ernest Borgnine, Andy Griffith, Rance Howard, Danny Thomas, Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Robert Conrad, Larry Manetti, Karl Malden, Pat Boone, Betsy Palmer, Abby Dalton, Ruta Lee, Julie Adams, Piper Laurie, Anne Jeffreys, Katherine Helmond, Richard Mulligan, Shelley Morrison, Elizabeth Montgomery, Gavin MacLeod, Bernie Kopell, Eddie Albert, Robert Wagner, Tony Randall, Peter Marshall, Dave Madden, Angie Dickinson, Michele Lee, James Stewart, Paul Junger Witt, Bob Claver, Drew Carey, Gordon Jump, Joanne Woodward, Jean Simmons, Shirley Knight, Mickey Rooney, Beverly Garland, Doris Day, Patti Page and Gordon MacRae.
17Alongside Norman Lloyd, William Daniels, Dick Van Dyke, Ernest Borgnine, Mickey Rooney, Christopher Lee, Betty White, Angela Lansbury, Edward Asner, Marla Gibbs, Adam West, William Shatner, Larry Hagman, Florence Henderson and Alan Alda, Jones is one of the few actors in Hollywood who lived into their 80s and/or 90s without ever either retiring from acting or having stopped getting work.

#Quote
1[on the death of her second husband Marty Ingels]: He often drove me crazy, but there's not a day I won't miss him and love him to my core.
2[Who was concerned about David Cassidy's alcoholic behavior/legal battles]: We are just scared to death that we are going to wake up one morning and find out that he is dead on the floor.
3[Discussing about David Cassidy's lack of contact with her real-life family]: David has not had a relationship with anyone in the family for years. We are sick over it.
4[on the death of James Garner]: I see this gorgeous man and I said, 'Oh, my!' He was very sweet. We went to this little restaurant and I told him, 'You're gonna be a giant star.' He said, 'How? I'm not sure I know how to act.'
5[Of James Garner]: Not only was he a great actor, but he didn't hit on me. He didn't have that reputation, like a lot of actors I worked with. He was very married, a family man. And a real straight-on guy.
6The only thing that bugs Jack is if he's not working. He can't stand inactivity or hanging around the house doing nothing but waiting. He's got to work, got to contribute. So long as he does that, everything is fine. No actor likes not to work. But Jack doesn't have any complex about being called, 'Mr. Shirley Jones'
7Jack was brought up in the European tradition of opening presents Christmas Eve, so he and I exchange our personal gift at that time.
8I've tried to bring all the things I loved about Christmas into my children's Christmases. Fortunately, Jack and I feel the same way. We don't have big family gatherings anymore. When we were first married and lived in a New York apartment, we used to collect all of the stragglers from out of town and I'd cook a big Christmas dinner for all of us.
9[Jack and Shirley on the holidays] We always have roast turkey. A big one! Jack likes to make the stuffing, usually the giblets. He's an excellent cook. Then we have mashed potatoes with chopped onions, homemade gravy, tiny peas with new onions, hot biscuits-and mashed rutabaga, an addition because of Jack's German heritage. I also make coleslaw, which he likes. For desert, hot mince meat or lemon meringue pie. Jack likes the mincemeat: the lemon is my favorite. And the boys take after me in this department.
10It wasn't until I met Jack that I found someone who understood me and the problems and inequities of the business. He didn't object to me working. He was anxious for my happiness and realized that my personal achievement was part of it. You can't take a girl like me who's been singing since she was a child, who has been in show business since she was a teenager, who has the business coursing in her blood-you can't take a girl like that and use marriage as a substitute. Businessmen don't understand that. But Jack, no matter what his success, wouldn't ever make that demand.
11I've simply have a marvelous husband, Jack Cassidy. He is a singer and actor. he's a sensible and mature man., seven years older than I am. We toured in Oklahoma! together, and for a while he was reluctant to marry a girl in show business- you know, two careers in the same family and all that. But love won out and we've been married since 1956. WE have two delightful boys-, Shuan who is four and Patrick who is one, and all we need now is a little girl.
12Right then and there, I began to re-evaluate my theory about good-looking men. Soon I discovered the sensitive understanding, the influence everything Jack said and did. And then I fell in love with his Irish humor- and with him. All this took less than a week!
13Jack wanted to come back to me right up to the day he died. And I wanted him. That's the terrible part. Much as I love Marty and have a wonderful relationship - I'd say this with Marty sitting here, I'm not sure is Jack were alive I'd be married to Marty.
14(Shirley and Cassidy) loved performing together. A lot of married couple don't, you know. Strangely enough, we were when we were performing together than on a day to day basis. When we were on stage we were the couple on the wedding cake. I know I would never have divorced him if he had not wanted it.
15I don't think I would have brought the same understanding to either of these parts, though, if I had not been married and secure as a wife and mother. When I met Jack, I was very naive. As a man of the world, he led me gently.
16Jack was an incredible human being. Incredibly talented, number one! He had this charisma that, when he walked in the room, not only women fell all over him, but men did too. He attracted everybody. He had a great, great sense of humor, which of course was the first attraction for me. Obviously I'm attracted to men with a sense of humor! (Laughs) That's the biggest thing. Not to mention he was as handsome as he was. For me, that was the least of it. The fact that he could make jokes about himself and that he didn't take himself that seriously made him interesting and exciting.
17No, it had nothing to do with jealousy. It had to do with the fact that he thought David was selling out. He called him a monkey in a cage. He lost respect for what David was doing. David started on Broadway and Jack respected his talent. He wanted him to be an actor. He thought by doing what David was doing, that he would end up exactly as he ended up. He had to start all over again.
18At this time in my life, it is fun to play the opposite of me. I just played an alcoholic nightclub singer on The Cleaner (2008). So, as much as I enjoyed The Partridge Family (1970), these days I want to go totally against type. That is what acting is all about - on playing a guest character on Ruby & the Rockits (2009) that is not "Shirley Partridge", in 2009.
19(In 1970): At first, my folks felt that Jack was just an infatuation, but when they realized I'd really made up my mind, they didn't stand in my way.
20(In 1971): David read for the part of the boy in The Partridge Family (1970), and when they found out that he was a relative of mine, they asked about my reaction. A lot of times they're very wary of relatives. I told them, 'I love David, but you must pick who's best for the show.' As it turned out, of course, he was the best of the lot.
21(Of David Cassidy): He has his own agent and didn't even know I was set for the lead. Nor did the producer realize he was Jack's son until after he read so well that he wanted to test David for the part. Then, he told me he was considering David for the role of my son. He asked me how I felt about it. I said, 'Great! I am crazy about him. He's very talented.' Then, he went back to David and told him, 'Your stepmother is going to play the lead.' How do you feel about that? And he replied, 'I think it's great!
22(Who let her ex-husband Jack Cassidy be the head of the family): Of course, I've always been independent because of my profession. But I like knowing that Jack is there to make decisions.
23I was able to teach Shaun that stardom was really a business of fantasy - a business for children - and the wonderful part, when one realizes the realities of it, is that it is fine to be another character for 12 hours, and then go home and face reality.
24(On starring in The Partridge Family (1970)): It's tough to do. Not only 5 kids and five singing kids, but we do a new song every week - completely arranged and choreographed. Put that into a four-day schedule and try and do it.
25(Who talked about preparing for a family transportation to drive on the set of The Partridge Family (1970)): It's me and the five children.
26(On her popularity of playing the thirty-five-something "Shirley Partridge" on The Partridge Family (1970)): I love the work, it's almost like playing myself. Shirley Partridge could just as easily be Shirley Cassidy. It's like going into my own home everyday. The thing I don't like is getting up at 5:30 everyday and getting home at 7.
27We love kid food, hamburgers, hot dogs and french fries.
28(Who's been a singer all her life): But I never sang pop songs with bands or made records; I was a show singer. I made albums - 'Oklahoma!,' 'Carousel,' 'Music Men.' But I never sang the songs apart from the shows.
29I have been coming every Friday night to watch the taping. I have never done that in my life. It is so exciting for me because the whole family is involved. - when she watched Ruby & the Rockits (2009), a short-lived sitcom that co-starred her stepson, David Cassidy and son, Patrick Cassidy.
30He came to respect me, he loved me, and vice-versa. We had our moments, because David had some disciplinary problems. He would show up late for work on Mondays, and keep the whole crew waiting, you know, for hours, and not to my liking or anybody else's. So, that had to be addressed and it was, until we got to know each other. - on her on- and off-screen chemistry with David Cassidy who played Keith Partridge.
31I was very worried about David, because as I said, he'd showed up on a Monday with no sleep, becoming terrified with the fans, becoming terrified with the press, wanting to hide his trailer, every minute. - on the cancellation of The Partridge Family (1970).
32He was a very, very strong force in my life. As a matter of fact, I never fell out of love with a man - on the death of Jack Cassidy.
33My policy is just one step at a time.
34"Some people pooh-pooh the Oscar. My career had been over because they weren't making musicals anymore. At the time, it was thought that if you were a singer you couldn't act." (on how winning an Oscar changed her life.)
35It's astonishing to see how many of these Hollywood big-wigs are trying to undermine President Bush.
36"You don't throw away 27 years. You just don't" - on why she withdrew her divorce petition against Marty Ingels.
37"Jack had a breakdown. A real mental breakdown. He was manic depressive. But he was the one that wanted the divorce. He thought it was better for me and the kids. I never did. I would have hung in there. I felt in many ways he was acting strangely and doing strange things and he felt perhaps it was better for all of us" - on the end of her marriage to Jack Cassidy.
38"The show killed my movie career" - on The Partridge Family (1970).
39After I won the Oscar, my salary doubled, my friends tripled, my children became more popular at school, my butcher made a pass at me, and my maid hit me up for a raise.
