Filmmaker Melodie Bryant is working on a documentary film about The Barbizon Hotel for Women. She is offering kindly us access to a trailer for her film, which I am happy to pass along to you. One of the interviewees in the trailer is Janet "Betsy/Pollyanna Cowgirl" Wagner from Sylvia Plath's novel The Bell Jar.
You can see more about the film at BarbizonMovie.com.
P.S.: You will learn and hear more from Janet Wagner and Plath's time at Mademoiselle in Elizabeth Winder's forthcoming book Pain, Parties, Work: Sylvia Plath in New York, Summer 1953, which is due to be published on 16 April 2013 by HarperCollins.
