Frances by Graeme Clifford( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of a small-town girl who tasted the glory in Hollywood and on Broadway, and then went on to lead a life in which everything went wrong. After winning a nationwide high school essay contest, Frances takes up acting, and escapes Seattle by winning a trip to Russia, ending up a contract player for Paramount Pictures in Hollywood. Frances continually bucks the system, and her refusal to play the game gets her in trouble with studio bosses, publicity people, everyone. Her strong-willed mother steps in to help her, and that's when her troubles really begin--series of hospitalizations, brutally mistreatment, and finally, a lobotomy. Frances never really got a chance to be who she should have been, or to do what she could have done. She had every gift she needed in life except for luck, useful friends, and an instinct for survival

Beyond the horizon by Eugene O'Neill( Visual )

6 editions published between 1975 and 2002 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of Eugene O'Neill's classic themes are present in his first full-length play, Beyond the Horizon, for which he won his first of four Pulitzer Prizes: Fantasy vs. reality, destiny subverted, sibling rivalry, and more. Rob Mayo is a young farmboy who reads poetry and dreams of going to sea; his brother Andy, a farmer through and through, wants nothing more than tilling this corner of the earth until his dying day. But both are in love with a girl named Ruth, and this conflict leads both to go against their deepest desires, leading to illness and unhappiness. Beyond the Horizon is justifiably overshadowed by O'Neill's later works, but the powers of his writing are still present. The well-received McCarter Theatre production is earnest and solid, and features Geraldine Fitzgerald (who garnered acclaim in many productions of O'Neill's work) and the great John Houseman
