Saint Jean on a Sunday

You show Jean Seberg without comment. I believe Jean Seberg, because of her support of the Black Panthers, was murdered by the FBI. People laugh when I say that, partly because they think Seberg too trivial a person for such a horrible fate, or for such a connection to radical forces. I don't see Seberg as trivial and so I see their dismissal of her as a double tragedy. She was perhaps too good when cast in the role of the "trivial American." Thanks for the video hook-up.

Jim - There are many who question her "suicide"/overdose which didn't make sense, but it's also hard to believe that in 1979 under Carter the FBI would target her. But I would put nothing past the FBI. Regardless, she was not trivial if only for her roles in "Breathless" and "Saint Joan". Her role in "Paint Your Wagon" is also a guilty pleasure. It's a train wreck of a movie on many levels, but she is wonderful in it all the same.
