I just read that actress Jean Simmons has passed away at the age of 80.
Yes, I thought she was a hottie on Spartacus and Elmer Gantry. But it’s her later work that made more of an impression on me. I remember her as the person who read the Bible passages on Mysteries of the Bible—in a dramatic, eerie sort of way. And then there’s her classic line on an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, where she played someone who conducted a political witch-hunt: “I’ve brought down bigger men than you, Picard!”
R.I.P., Jean Simmons.
UPDATE: I hope this link works. Jean Simmons interrogates Picard, who gives an eloquent speech on civil liberties. If it doesn’t work, you can search for the title on YouTube. Enjoy!
