Jean Simmons

Jean Simmons passed away on Friday, at the age of 80.  She was one of my favorite actresses, but really for a single role.  She played Sarah Brown in the movie of Guys and Dolls, alongside Marlon Brando.  Here they are, with a wonderful song:

(Note how badly Brando sings, yet how he still commands the screen.)

In large part because of Jean Simmons' performance in that movie, I always loved the name Sarah, which became the name of my oldest daughter.

Farewell, Jean.
