"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Girl Saturday - Jean Simmons

Two of my favorite movies of the late 1950s are the western, The Big Country, with Gregory Peck, Burl Ives, and Charlton Heston, and Spartacus, the great Kirk Douglas epic of a slave revolt in Rome just before Christ.   The love interest in both movies was the lovely Jean Simmons. 

Jean Simmons died earlier this year at the age of 80.
