In case you haven't heard, that ethereal actress Jean Simmons passed away over the weekend.

While she appeared in a number of movies like Hamlet and Guys and Dolls, and later in her life, TV series such as The Thornbirds and Star Trek: The Next Generation, I will always remember her from my childhood playing Varinia in Spartacus (opposite Kirk Douglas), and Diana (opposite Richard Burton).

These were probably the cheesiest films ever made. but considering these were the only ones we could watch during Holy Week from the 1970s onwards, I grew fond of them. To this day, I still get a kick watching them during Good Friday.
