Jean Simmons Life

Jean Merilyn Simmons, OBE (31 January 1929 – 22 January 2010) was a British-American actress and singer.

She appeared in films, beginning with those made in Great Britain during and after World War II, and then predominantly Hollywood films from 1950 to 1990.

Young Bess (1953), The Robe (1953), Elmer Gantry (1960), Spartacus (1960), and the 1969 film The Happy Ending, for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress were among her notable film appearances.

She has also received an Emmy Award for the 1983 miniseries The Thorn Birds.

Personal life

Simmons was married and divorced twice. Stewart Granger was born in Tucson, Arizona, on December 20, 1950. In 1956, she and Granger were admitted to the United States; in the same year, Tracy Granger was born. They separated in 1960.

Simmons married director Richard Brooks on November 1, 1960, and their daughter, Kate Brooks, was born a year later in 1961. In 1980, Simmons and Brooks split. Despite the fact that both men were older than Simmons, she denied that she was searching for a father figure. Her father died when she was 16 years old, but she said, "They were nothing like my father at all." My father was a gentle, softly spoken man. Both my husbands were louder and more opinionated, and it had nothing to do with age... it's just about what's there – the twinkle and sense of humor." And in a 1984 interview, given in Copenhagen at the time she was shooting the film Going Undercover (1988, aka, Yellow Pages, 1985), she depressed a little about her marriages.

Simmons had two children, Tracy Granger (a film editor since 1990) and Kate Brooks (a television production assistant and producer), one by each marriage – their names testify to Simmons's love with Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. Simmons moved to New Milford, Connecticut, in the late 1970s. She returned to California, settling in Santa Monica, California, where she lived until her death.

Simmons was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 2003 for his services to acting.

She became the patron of the British drugs and human rights charity Release in 2003. In 2005, she signed a petition urging British Prime Minister Tony Blair not to change cannabis from a class C drug to a class B drug.


YOUR fifty classic films have been rediscovered. After BRIAN VINER's Top 100 films list, our readers responded with a passionate tweet, so here are our favorites — as well as his verdict, April 6, 2024
BRIAN VINER: If I compiled my list again today, I still wouldn't have space for The Italian Job, Forrest Gump, The Great Escape, or Titanic, which all of which encouraged readers to write in. By the way, that doesn't mean I don't like or even love those photos (although not Titanic), which makes me wish the iceberg would strike a bit sooner). Here is a list of the Top 20 movies you should have included in my Top 100 list, as well as your reasons for... The Shawshank Redemption (left), Mary Poppins (right), and Saving Private Ryan (inset).

During the first episode of BBC1's first episode, dissatisfied Great Expectations viewers switch over, March 26, 2023
When watching the first episode of the BBC1 series on Sunday night, dissatisfied Great Expectations viewers said they'switch over'. Many who attended Charlies Dickens' 1861 novel complained that it was too dark, had too much swearing, and was unrecognizable from the original story. The novel has been rewritten by Peaky Blinders creator Stephen, but those watching this version at home were unimpressed.
