A modern but film noir style movie based on the life Hollywood actress and television host, Frances Elena Farmer who lived from 1913 to 197. She is perhaps better known for sensationalized accounts of her life, especially her involuntary commitment to a mental hospital. Farmer started in plays in New York City and her first film was Too Many Parents in 1936. Later was given starring role in Rhythm on the Range with Bing Crosby and many more movies with figures like Cary Grant. In 1942, publicity of Farmer's reportedly erratic behavior began to surface, and after several arrests and committals to psychiatric institutions, Farmer was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. At the request of her family, particularly her mother, she was relocated from Los Angeles to an institution in her home state of Washington where she was a patient until 1950. Farmer attempted an acting comeback, mainly appearing as a television host in Indianapolis on her own series, Frances Farmer Presents. Her final film role was in the 1958 drama The Party Crasher. She died of esophageal cancer in 1970 at the age of 56.
