Hi vikingqueen - according to wikipedia, she didn't actually have a lobotomy - it seems like it was a mistaken conclusion taken as fact for many years. And the stories involving rape were probably added to her ghost-written autobiography in order sensationalize her story to sell more....still a very sad life.

Her article is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frances_Farmer - a very interesting read.

One of the best and touching movies I ever seen is "Frances" with Jessica Lange,
it's a great movie and I recommend it if your interested in great acting.

Found a website that had some lovely photos...

Check out the difference between the screen test photos! The eyebrows make such a difference.

i think she's jus luminous. and her face looks intelligent too.
i dont think jessica lange looks like her at all. she reminds me alot of katherine hepburn but with softer features.

Do you mean that Jessica Lange or Frances Farmer resemble Katherine Hepburn?

I would really like to read her book Will there really be a morning? I just wished it hadn't been so difficult to get a hold of.

That movie about her life was so sad, Kurt Cobain named his daughter after her.
