Jean Simmons was a mere 17 when she won the role of Estella in David Lean's ravishing 1946 film version of the Dicken's novel Great Expectations. All it took was one glimpse of that deceptively innocent beauty, coquettishly shaming her awestruck suitor, and we, like lovelorn young Pip, would have gladly followed her anywhere. And follow audiences did. Now, in Telluride, Jean Simmons once again charms her many admirers in the great Sheridan Opera House as she receives her Tribute Medallion from 2004 Tributee Laura Linney. Afterwards, she sits down with Film and Music critic Gary Giddins to reminisce about her decades-spanning career and the leading men she played with.
