Jack Simmons

  1. Sal Mineo, Rebel Without a Cause, 1955.  He had connections so Jack was seen for the gay Plato kid. So were Richard Beymer and Russ Tamblyn (who swopped roles in West Side Story), Bobby Gray (no kin to Peter, up for the kindly Fremik), Jeff Silver and James Dean’s pals Dennis Hopper. Plus… Bobby Driscoll, no longer young Jim Hawkins from Disney’s Treasure Island, 1949…  Claude Jarman Jr,  no longer the kid from The Yearling, 1945…  and Sheffield, no longer Tarzan’s adopted son, Boy, in seven films during 1938-1947. (He had to be “adopted” because the ape-man and Jane were not  wed!) James Dean suggested  Jack, his current roommate – but director Nicholas Ray gave Cookie to Simmons. (Sidney Lumet had launched Dean, Mineo and Paul Newman (a Jim Stark candidate) in his  New York TV shows)
