Nothing wrong with her looks as she got older, either. It isn't only the young who can be beautiful or handsome. People of any age can.

Yes, that age old religion scam never wears out it seems.

Just caught Jean Simmons in "Huys and Dolls" and sorry to see she passed away at age 80 in 2010 with little notice... one of the great ones.
