I'm embarassed to say that I didn't even know she was still alive up until this news of her passing. I remember her most from Spartacus but she was also in a lot of critically acclaimed movies during her career.

If I remember correctly she won an Emmy for that role and was nominated for a Golden Globe. The woman was an amazing actress and she will be missed.

It's always tragic for me when a Classic Film star passes away because it's just another reminder how so few of these stars are left.

But I do think it is pretty cool to see people discussing this here and on classic film boards. It's like my two fandoms are connected somehow.

Oh wow, I wonder if my dad knows - he considers her one of his favorites. For a full list of her roles, go here.

Edit: He does, and is feeling a little sad. Sad

THE Jean Simmons film that must be seen is, of course, Angel Face.

I'm also sad to hear of her passing and condolences to her family at her loss. I remembered who she was when I first read she passed away on MSNBC but I had forgotten she was in Howl's. What I did remember was what she looked like from the movie of Guys and Dolls (I have "If I Were A Bell" stuck in my head now, FWIW Embarassed ) and that she had been in a memorable episode of ST:TNG (The Drumhead).

This is the first role I thought about when I read the headline. Awesome episode.

RIP

I'm a fan of classic movies (pre 1960) and anime, and this is a tragedy on both ends.

A lot of people have died in 2010, and it's not even February yet.
