Stellar quartette – Jean Simmons and Stewart Granger, husband and wife in real life, cast amused glances at each other as they and Deborah Kerr listen to Charles Laughton give one of his famed readings during a lull between scenes on the set of MGM’s Young Bess.    All four star in the lavish new Technicolor romance, with Miss Simmons playing the title role as the spirited princess who became England’s great Queen Elizabeth
