Jean Simmons

The one directly before Jean Simmons was Maurice Jarre. I don't know who the other one was.

Looked like a cowboy actor.

I wonder if Adam Shankman ever actually listened to the lyrics of "In My Life."

I thought the song was inappropriate as well...that was the first thing i thought of when it started...but more than that i thought having him sing was really awkward and the whole thing felt disjointed with him singing and then there being lines from movies...it was hard to keep up with that and combine that with having to move your eyes around with three different small screens and they were on for not that long, you had too much going on i think. I'd much rather have jt playing with no lyrics and hearing lines from the actors....and no three different screens at the same time...it just didn't work for me.

"In My Life" was such an inappropriate song for the Memororium. It's basically saying I miss these people but not as much as I miss you.
