The Lovely Miss Jean Simmons
Here is Jean Simmons.
I see from the TCM Now Playing program
guide that she's appearing tonight in the
1953 film Young Bess, which the trailer
calls "the story of an unhappy queen."
Which is hilarious when you consider
that her co-star is Charles Laughton,
a truly unhappy queen. Also starring
is Stewart Granger, who looks really
gay in tights and feathered hats. In fact,
the whole MGM Technicolor extravaganza
looks like a gay hat designer's wet dream.
You should probably skip it and watch
Jean Simmons in Elmer Gantry (1960),
Spartacus (1960), or Mister Buddwing
(1966). She's still around and still acting.
