    After being declared 'mentally incompetent' she was placed in several asylums and mental hospitals.
    She was given a lobotomy.
    Although some believe Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love named their daughter after her, it was untrue.
    She was jailed for parole violations regarding drunk driving. An arresting officer asked her what her occupation was, she wrote 'cocksucker' and was sentenced to 180 days in prison.
    She married three times and divorced twice.
    She claimed she despised Hollywood, yet she was an actress.
    When she received her prison sentence, she threw a fit because she was refused her phone call on leaving court. She started punching and kicking, and had to be dragged out of the courtroom in a straightjacket.
    She was the subject of the song 'Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle' by Nirvana.
    Jessica Lange received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for portraying her in the movie 'Frances.'
    She studied drama at the University of Seattle.
    She died of cancer at 70.
    Some felt she was treated unfairly by the mental hospital.
