Sylvan Simon, whose credits include Son of Lassie, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello in Hollywood and Born Yesterday. After his death, her mother remarried Armand Deutsch, an MGM producer. As a child actress, Susan appeared in movies with Abbott & Costello, Red Skelton, Lucille Ball and Lassie.

Susan is also the film critic for the monthly magazine, Video Librarian.
In her Introduction for 150 Timeless Movies, Susan writes, “I believe the 150 movies that I’ve chosen for this collection of reviews, many of which made since the turn of the 21st century -- yet still including 25 classics -- will stand the test of time…Timeless movies come in all forms: animated, comedy, drama, horror, romance, war, western, documentary and science-fiction. What they all have in common is that they’re a successful creative collaboration, often revolving around love, family and the indomitable human spirit.”
Among the films included in Susan's excellent book are: 2001: A Space Odyssey, African Queen, Avatar, The Bucket List, City Lights, Saving Private Ryan, The Lives of Others, The Social Network, Slumdog Millionaire , The Wizard of Oz, and 140 more must-see movies.
