Terrific biography
7 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

I have already seen the movie starring Jessica Lange and curiously made the same year, in 1983. Both features are powerful, so are the performances. But I wonder why the Leif Erikson's character - former Frances Farmer's husband - is not spoken about in this TV movie. I don't remember if it was in the film with Jessica Lange. And I also wonder why the hell they made two films about the same topic in the very same year. I really don't get why. But after all, who cares, both are very good. I guess there were so many other actresses who deserved to have their lives told about. Hollywood was a real meat chopper for actors and actresses. A pit for broken dreams. Anyway, this kind of story is perfect for TV audiences and not for theater ones, who rather look for fun and entertainment instead of true and realistic face of life. Its darkest side.
