SIMONE SIMON, 1910-2005
The French actress Simone Simon passed away yesterday
In the 1930s, Darryl Zanuck whisked her to the USA, amid much hoopla, where she starred in a number of Fox films before becoming disenchanted with Hollywood. Among those American films were Henry King's sound remake of the Borzage silent classic, Seventh Heaven (1937), in which Simon starred opposite James Stewart.
Simon also starred in Jean Renoir's La Bęte humaine (1938); William Dieterle's The Devil and Daniel Webster (1941); Jacques Tourneur's Cat People (1942); and Max Ophüls' La Ronde (1950) and Le Plaisir (1952).
