The actress Jean Simmons has died:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/8476400.stm
It was always a delight seeing her on screen. She played her first roles in classic British films such as The Way to the Stars, Great Expectations
and Black Narcissus
. Later she starred in big Hollywood productions such as The Robe, Guys and Dolls, The Big Country
. A personal favourite is a witty comedy called The Grass is Greener
(1960) written by Hugh and Margaret Williams, co-starring Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr and Robert Mitchum. Another favourite is a film from 1995 called Daisies in December
(co-starring Joss Ackland). I saw it once on television but sadly I didn't record it then. The film doesn't seem to be available on DVD.
RIP Jean Simmons
