What was it like to be a young woman in the era depicted in That question is answered in this memoir by Ceil Cleveland, the woman long-rumored to be the model for the Jacy Farrow character in the well-known McMurtry novel and Bogdanovich movie. Cleveland notes that as a teenager in the 1950s in the tiny Texas town of Archer City, she learned from movies how to act, walk, dress, speak, and attract or dismiss men.
