  1. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Young Bess

    2.5 stars. A square, stately bio from MGM. The two leading ladies strike sparks, however. They played opposite each other three times, I believe: "Black Narcissus," "The Grass is Greener" and here. Jean Simmons and Deborah Kerr were both great actresses wasted in Hollywood. Kerr was luckier but Simmons was just as gifted. They are usually saving graces.
