The Goddess

Kim Stanley stars as an unhappy child of the Depression who becomes an unhappy movie stara character largely modeled on Marilyn Monroein this uncompromising and ambitiously structured look at the dark side of Hollywood, directed by John Cromwell from an original script by Paddy Chayevsky. Divided into separately titled chapters, this portrait of a tragically trapped life was an unlikely and grimly memorable movie to come out of Hollywood in 1958. With a fine supporting cast, including Lloyd Bridges, Steven Hill, Betty Lou Holland, and Patty Duke. (JR)
