such a sad story

what a darling picture of gene tierney. it is hard to imagine this smiling young person as the same woman who suffered from mental illness. like frances farmer, gene was given a series of shock treatments. it sounds so barbaric now.

makes you realized that mental illness can be functional and powerful overtly but oh so covertly detrimental when the demands are abused for commercial gains. so sad for the likes of frances, gene and rita.
