4.0 out of 5 stars Good book about a tragic actress... Feb. 6 2006
By Pamara Lunn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I read "Played Out: The Jean Seberg Story" by David Richards many years ago and still can remember how well written it was. It chronicles the life of actress Jean Seberg, from her humble beginnings in Iowa through her life as an actress in Hollywood and France, and then her suicide in Paris from a barbituate overdose at the tragically young age of 41. The book paints Seberg not so much as an anti-establishment rebel as has been written of her so often in the past (although she was involved in the anti-vietnam peace movement), instead as a vulnerable, tragic young woman who was pushed into the abyss of mental illness by the bizarre actions of the FBI who listed her as a "subversive" due to her association with some members of the Black Panther Party in the early 1970's. It also tells of her film career (her films include Joan Of Arc, Paint Your Wagon and Airport), and also her 3 marriages. Most compelling is the story Author Richards tells of her slow downward spiral into depression, then madness. A must read for Jean Seberg fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, tragic Jean July 31 2012
By RP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is my third time reading this fascinating portrait of a lovely screen presence. I highly recommend this haunting story of a mesmerizing, underrated movie star. It reads like a suspense novel as it unravels Jean's life and career through a wild journey of highs and lows, ultimately ending in tragedy.
Also, try to see Bonjour Tristesse. The French Riviera is almost as beautiful as Jean herself, accompanied by the great Deborah Kerr and David Niven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting Jan. 21 2013
By P. Velasquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A riveting story that is exhaustively researched and beautifully written. You don’t need to be familiar with Jean Seaberg’s films to be swept up this this Cinderella story that went terribly wrong.

One of the best biographies I have read in a very long time of a very enigmatic,sensitive personality.
She was very avant garde and was "way before her time".
