Summary:
"Previous biographies of actress Frances Farmer (1913-1970) have downplayed her professional achievements to emphasize her turbulent personal life. This book endeavors to restore her position as a significant Hollywood player of the 1930s, '40s and '50s. An analysis of her film, radio and television work is offered. Each of Frances' 16 films receives a chapter-length discussion"--Provided by publisher.
