  • THE GODDESS, said to be loosely based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, is the story of a young woman destined from childhood on to be adored by millions but unhappy in her own life. Patty Duke plays Emily Ann Faulkner as a young, friendless, fatherless rural southern girl whose mother is indifferent to her. As a teenager, Emily Ann, played by Kim Stanley, remains a loner but with one small exception--boys dote on her, drawn by her beauty and her powerful aura of feminine sexuality. Emily Ann marries young but leaves her first husband when she meets a young prizefighter. She becomes an actor and her star rises rapidly until she hits the heights of fame--and the depths of anguish.

    Adapted by three-time Oscar-winning screenwriter Paddy Chayevsky from his own stage play, THE GODDESS is an in-depth character study, an incisive look at Hollywood, and a social commentary on fame, fortune, and sex. Stanley, a celebrated stage actor in her first film role, gives a sublime and heart-wrenching performance in one of the best films ever made about Hollywood.
