Фрэнсис Фармер: мятежная звезда

  В честь неё  французская певица Милен Готье взяла свой сценический псевдоним и стала известна миллионам как Милен Фармер, а Курт Кобейн посвятил песню и назвал свою дочь её именем. Фрэнсис Фармер (Frances Farmer) — одна из самых ярких и трагических звезд Голливуда 1930-х годов. Великолепная внешность, несомненный актерский дар, острый ум и тонкое мироощущение - редкое сочетание для одного человека. Она поступала так, как ей хотелось, и говорила то, что думала. И Голливуд не простил ей этого...

"The more people pointed at me in scorn the more stubborn I got and when they began calling me the Bad Girl of West Seattle High, I tried to live up to it."

"Frances was unable to or unwilling to accept the world as it is; she still believed in her ideals. This prideful refusal to sacrifice them (even after she found out the rules she refused to play the game) obviously contributed to her downfall. It was also what made her such a noble and beautiful soul. She wanted to be a great actress and she wanted to fight injustice. She had a pure heart and never sacrificed her ideals. I think we can all learn something from her honesty, and from her life. It is my deepest hope that my play will do justice to the beauty of her spirit and that it will make all the terrible suffering she went through mean something to the people today." - Sebastian Stuart, author "The Frances Farmer Story".
