Quotable Quotes:

"[on Spartacus (1960)] Making Spartacus was enough acting to last anybody a lifetime. You know, after we had been filming a year Kirk Douglas sent me a magnum of champagne with a little note saying, "I hope our second year will be as happy as our first."." (IMDB)

"I do love the white meat but nobody can resist a nice juicy thigh."

"Our greatest natural resource is the minds of our children. "

"She had dreamed of flying for as long as she could remember. She wanted to experience the world and find out where she fit in. In 1961, Jean Simmons had the perfect opportunity to do just that when she enlisted in the Air Force. She became a bombardier and flew missions in South Korea and Viet Nam. When the Vietnam War ended, Simmons was discharged. She started a family and made the decision to move to California, where she started a successful business. In her later years, Simmons found herself paralyzed from the waist down, but she refused to let her disability define her life. She continued to work and enjoyed watching her children grow up. In 2002, Simmons was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and died at the age of 78. (V)"
