"Norma Rae" Sally Fields (Gidget, The Flying Nun, Forest Gump) is a woman who worked at the O.P.H. Hentley Textile Mill. The role is especially nice because it is a true story about a woman who took a stand against her employers who violated labor law regulations. The manufacturers were so flagrant in their violations that Norma Rae's father had arm pain, and asked for a break. He was made to wait... read more

20 From 79: My Favorite Films Of 1979 (20 movies items)

"Before I saw this film, I always thought of Sally Field as either that one flying nun chick, or as the one girl from those Cannonball Run movies (it is this point of the sentence that someone will remind me that the movies I'm really thinking of are really the Smokey & The Bandit's, not the CBR's....). But after watching her in Norma Rae, I came to realize that, as an actress, I like her. I really, really like her. "

"No doubt, you have recently turned on the news and heard a bit about the chaos surrounding the unions in Wisconsin. The presence of unions has been an important part of culture within the United States for a long time. Whether you agree with the Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker or not, it's clear that the film Norma Rae dramatically impacted the views of Americans in the late 1970's. Sally field won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Norma Rae; a Southern mill worker who becomes involved with "

“"Norma Rae" Sally Fields (Gidget, The Flying Nun, Forest Gump) is a woman who worked at the O.P.H. Hentley Textile Mill. The role is especially nice because it is a true story about a woman who took a stand against her employers who violated labor law regulations. The manufacturers were so flagrant in their violations that Norma Rae's father had arm pain, and asked for a break. He was made to wait. Actually the pain in the arm was a heart attack that killed him. Sad! The noise in the factory was so bad that everybody had to yell and wear ear protection. I am so glad I don't have to work in such a noisy place. I would lose my mind. I find that silence inspires me! Norma Rae joined the union and got the company to unionize by challenging the audience to fight for what they believe it is righ” read more
