Frances by Graeme Clifford ( Visual )

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

Der Elefantenmensch : Regie: David Lynch : Drehbuch: Christopher De Vore ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1980 in German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Im viktorianischen England des 19. Jahrhunderts muss der junge John Merrick sein Dasein als Jahrmarktsattraktion fristen. Er ist von Geburt an von schweren körperlichen Deformationen gezeichnet. Nachdem die Freak-Show wegen Verletzung der öffentlichen Moral geschlossen wird, bringt der Arzt Frederick Treves den als "Elefantenmensch" bezeichneten Merrick zu Forschungszwecken in ein Krankenhaus. Zunächst ist Treves' Interesse rein medizinischer Natur, doch als Merrick krank wird, macht es sich Treves zum Ziel, ihn aus seinen unwürdigen Lebensbedingungen zu befreien. Es entwickelt sich eine ehrliche Freundschaft zwischen den beiden Männern. Doch im Krankenhaus, das nur heilbar Kranke aufnehmen darf, stößt Merricks Anwesenheit auf Widerstand. Gleichzeitig avanciert der "Elefantenmensch" auch zum Gesprächsthema der Londoner Gesellschaft, so dass Königin Victoria persönlich zu seinen Gunsten bei der Krankenhausverwaltung interveniert und seinen ständigen Aufenthalt dort sichert. Doch damit ist Merricks Tortur keineswegs beendet. Die gesellschaftlichen Vorurteile sitzen zu tief, als dass er sich ihnen entziehen könnte. (http://www.arte-tv.com, 25.05.2004)
