Jean Simmons Hates Self On TV * Actress Eyes Stage Show Despite 2 Disasters 15 By STAN MAAYS HOLLYWOOD -- On Easter night ABC's showing of 'The Robe" took the No. 1 spot in the ratings. But if the raters had checked a hilltop home on Charrying Cross Road they would have been disappointed. Not only did the lady of the house -- Jean Simmons -- avoid the movie she co starred in with Richard Burton, she doesn't look at anything she's in. That includes her TV appearances on Bob Hope Presents, and the recent Hallmark Hal] of Fame drama, "Soldier in Love." "It's just loo painful," she shuddered. "I simply can't be objective about myself. When my husband (director Richard Brooks) did 'Elmer Gantry* he made me look at the rushes, and I became so self conscious I couldn't work for the next three days!" The London-born beauty, veteran of many lavishly-costumed British movies, presented a thoroughly modem American (she's naturalized) girl appearance. Clad in sweater and slacks, Jean curled her legs up on a settee as she continued. "But you know, I'm fascinated by that box over there. It's one of the most important things in the world." So if she doesn't watch herself on television, what does interest her on TV? "I love I Spy,' she quickly responded. "The way those two, Robert Culp and Bill Cosby, work together, it's marvelous. I like Mort Sahl too, although I'm really not quite sure what he's talking about. And Julia Child, the way she drops things when she's talking and cooking and making those boo boos like we all do. She's delightful!" Jean wouldn't want to do a TV series and be tied up every week, but you get the Impression that if the right thing came along, well . . . Right now she'd love to do a musical, despite having been in two stage "disasters." "It would be Just ureat to put over a song," she slfihcd. 'Tve been taking singing lessons every day now. I'm working with Herb Green. He's the one who helped Robert Preslon, you know." She paused a moment to run her fingers through a'match of something that looked like Fess Park's worn-out coonskin cap, "Aren't you going to ask m« about my hair?" she inquired, with that familiar startled look.. "It's short and bleached as a result of that Hall of Fame play," she laughed. "You see, I can't stand to wear a wig. All that plastic and stickiness around the forehead, it looks awful. So I let them cut it short and put a half wig on in back. "The hairdresser put on a Buddy Rich album -- I just love his music . . . Glenn Miller, Harry James, kind of dates me, huh? -- and he chop-chopped away. My husband, who likes my hair long, hates it, but I think, it's kind of refreshing, don't you?" Now that she mentioned It, her almost Joan D'Arc coiffure seemed almost as refreshing as Miss Simmons herself. ·fmmtHi/aaitfrffm/tfmanatneia/mrHiH/rmi Dick Van Dyke Gets Film Role A promising comedy package was finalized yesterday with the announcement that the Harold Hecht production company will Dim "Baggy Pants" with Dick Van Dyke set to star in the original comedy by Walter Newman. , Carl Reiner will direct and co- produce with Hecht the new property.
