Summary "Frances Foster ('Frankie' to her friends) is the sheltered daughter of a prominent judge and a proper Southern lady, but what she really wants is to be a movie star. In spirte of her family's misgivings, she boards a train and heads for Hollywood in search of fame and fortune. Frankie soon finds work at Monumental Pictures as an extra in a swashbuckling costume film. Unfortunately, her career threatens to be short-lived when producer Arthur Cohen staggers onto the soundstage in an apparent drunken rage and drops dead at her feet. The police dismiss the death as a heart attack, but then, they don't know about the quarrel Frankie overheard between the producer and his brother/business partner. With filming suspended indefinitely and her funds running low, Frankie must uncover the truth if she is to save the picture and her fledgling career." -- P. [4] of cover.
