I first learned about Francis after seeing a movie by the same name starring Jessica Lange. I began reading what books I could find about her and looking for her movies. She has THE most tragic Hollywood story, then or now. Francis was NOT mentally ill. Her controlling, sick mother used the threat of institutional commitment to get Francis to do as SHE wanted. Francis would take as much as she could and then go on an escape drinking binge to deal with it all. The most horrifying thing I've seen...was after she was given a lobotomy (!!!) they had her on "This is Your Life".
Can you imagine? She was treated so inhumanly in her life. And she WAS a beauty and a STAR...

I have heard the name but never the details :shudder:
