Frances by Graeme Clifford ( Visual )
32 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 643 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

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Set in Russia at the turn of the century, the play focuses on 3 educated, well-bred sisters whose romances and careers have turned out disastrously. They share a house in the country with their witless brother and his shrewish wife. Obsessed with the idea that all their problems are caused by living in the provinces, they dream of returning to their childhood home in Moscow. Like other Chekhov heroes, they are sensitive but paralyzed and incapable of altering the course of their lives. This is a filmed version of the famed Actors Studio production directed by Lee Strasberg, which ran for 119 performances on Broadway

Look here ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
When asked why she went on the stage, actress Stanley replies, "I suppose anybody that comes into the theatre or any of the arts is in some way a rebel.... I wanted to take off my skin, so to speak, and say 'Hey, wait a minute, it should be this way.'" Stanley is also questioned about acting on television without an audience, whether she acts to please herself or the audience, the studies in drama that enabled her to reach this point in her career, her odd jobs such as waitress, how an actor becomes--and understands--a part whose personality is different from theirs, her attitudes toward Hollywood after just finishing a movie, and the rewards of the business. In addition, Stanley explains her statement that studying with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio is not unlike psychoanalysis
