In films from 1969, Jennifer Warren's best-known movie role was Francine Dunlop, the fed-up wife of hockey coach Paul Newman in Slap Shot (1977). She played subsequent gutsy, keep-your-distance parts in such TV series as Paper Dolls (1984) and Double Dare (1985).
Moving into directing in the 1990s, Jennifer Warren called the shots on the 1994 cinema adaptation of Carolyn Chute's novel Beans of Egypt, Maine. Her second directorial feature, Partners in Crime (2000), found Rutger Hauer and Paulina Porizkova cast as a divorced couple who must team-up in order to solve a complex series of vicious murders. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
