Sally Field was born in Pasadena, California and she is the original California Girl. I grew up watching her on television as Gidget in 1965 and then the Flying Nun in 1967. I so enjoyed those weekly sit coms and I knew they were silly, but also so much fun to watch.
In the years following Sally starred in many films and TV movies. One of my favorite movies was Norma Rae in 1979 and also Forrest Gump in 1994. Tonight I will be rooting for her during the Oscars – she is by far my favorite actress in the running. Sally Field has three things that is by far… most important:
- comedic ability
In 2006, Sally Field played the Nora Walker on ABC-TV and I watched the drama of the adult’s siblings until 2011. She did a remarkable performance on that show with that cast and crew, I was sad to see the series ended.
