Just more proof of how competent Frances really was
23 May 2006 | by jmk56See all my reviews

"Frances Farmer Presents" was an Indianapolis ratings powerhouse for six years, 1958-64. Farmer was not merely a "film introducer," she did extensive research for her programs (as evidenced by still extant notes she wrote for certain episodes) and often gave her first-hand impressions of stars and directors who were in that day's feature. Visiting celebrities were a standard feature on Farmer's program, and in still-existing film of her show, she proves what an insightful and gracious interviewer she was. Indianapolis was lucky to have a star of Farmer's stature hosting a show of this nature for so long. In an early 80s television interview, WFBM co-worker Jim Gerrard sums up Frances' character as one of "caring elegance," and that elegance is fully on display in "Frances Farmer Presents."
