when you get where you're going
Simone Signoret became the first French person to win an Academy Award, for her role in Room at the Top (1959). i rewatched that movie just last night. such a great performance from simone. everyone was really good in the classic rags to riches story of a hungry young man determined to have it all. but the price, the price...
I suspect there isn't an actor alive who was able to truthfully answer his family's questions after his first day's activity in his future profession. -Simone Signoret
simone's looks changed drastically over the years. the more weary she appeared, the greater the impression. like anna magnani, she was a force to be reckoned with.
