From teen sensation to Oscar winning actress, America’s sweetheart Sally Field redefined Hollywood’s image of bankable actresses with a combination of unwavering perseverance, spirit and charm, proving stardom is ageless. Spectacular clips, trailers, photographs and candid interviews with family and friends illuminate the life of this truly remarkable actress. Amidst the “baby-boom” Sally Field was born on November 6, 1946 in Pasadena, California. A petite and charming child, Sally discovered acting in junior high school as a way of overcoming her shyness and insecurity. At the age of eighteen, she was cast as the star of the ABC TV series “Gidget,” but it was a series created for the wholesome teen, “The Flying Nun,” that rocketed her into stardom as Sister Beatrille. Unhappy with her work in television and determined to be a serious film actress, the star began studying at the famed Actor’s Studio where under the guidance of Lee Strasburg, built her confidence as an actress. More determined than ever, her break out performance in the television movie “Sybil” shattered her teen image, and with an Emmy for Best Actress, transitioned into adult roles.
