  1. My goodness, Dawn, put blonde hair on Genna Davis and she DOES look a lot like Frances. You are so good at putting these together. Poor Frances, what a hard life she had. She lived here in Indianapolis for years in her later life, performed at our Avondale Playhouse, and had her own afternoon show hosting movies, which I used to watch every day after school. Good catch with pictures!

  2. They really do look a lot alike!

  3. I agree with Becky and Audrey. Excellent choice Dawn.

  4. Wow--good one. I would have never come up with that.

  5. Thank you everyone. I noticed the similarity while I was watching the film. Come and Get It, the other day.

  6. Becky, I just read up on Frances Farmer, what a life she had. I'm glad that you were able to see some of her performances. What a thrill that must have been.
