Jean Simmons Has Died
Sad news. One of Eyewear's favourite actresses has died - Jean Simmons. She was in classics like Olivier's Hamlet and Black Narcissus; and then again in blockbusters like Spartacus, but I love her performance as the lovestruck doomed evangelist in the under-rated masterpiece, Elmer Gantry. Later on, she found new work and respect in the major TV event of the time, The Thornbirds, for which she won an Emmy.
