Constance Smith – Hollywood Tragedy on TG4

KGK0MC Brighton Rock (1947)
The tragic story of Limerick-born Constance Smith, an Irish actress who enjoyed Hollywood stardom in over 30 movies.

Constance was a determined and independent woman in an industry that welcomed neither. She refused to be pigeonholed and continuously fought for better roles in better movies. However, Hollywood cut her loose, which started a downward spiral into drugs and drink and ended in imprisonment and an impoverished death. This documentary charts her tragic life story featuring interviews with her family, fans and contemporaries.

Screens on TG4 on Thursday, 3rd January at 9.30pm
