Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

Colleen Applegate was from Minnesota -- young, pretty and naive. She went to Hollywood in search of a dream, but soon found herself acting in X-rated movies, on drugs, and estranged from her family and friends. After two years in California, she took her own life and left only questions about how this could happen. Correspondent Al Austin.
