I thought Jessica Lange made a good Francis Farmer, and I just seen Francis Farmer for the first time in a movie, she was quiet the actress.
Jessica Lange was robbed of an Academy Award for her mesmerizing performance in the 1982 film, Frances, a relatively gripping character study/biography of the late 1930's actress Frances Farmer, who, after being ostracized from Hollywood, ended up being declared insane, institutionalized, and lobotomized, according to this screenplay.
