Angels take thee to thy bliss, JEAN SIMMONS.

Wonderful lady who never picked up the diva attitude for all she might have claimed it. She was an amazing and stunningly versatile lifelong performer. Over 60 years of gracious work made this physically dainty person more than a pillar, more like a bearing wall of the house of Entertainment; a bearing wall made of glowing jewels.
Last month took JENNIFER JONES and BRITTANY MURPHY. The signs thus far are that 2010 is not going to be an environment for the exquisite and ethereal (at least in the movies). Puts me in mind of some of our oldest surviving female filmstars. Prayers for the ladies of grace!
