About this item
The "Best Actress Double Feature" includes "Norma Rae" and "Coming Home". "Norma Rae": In an Oscar-winning performance, Sally Field is unforgettable as "Norma Rae", the Southern millworker who revolutionizes a small town and discovers a power in herself she never had. Under the guidance of a New York unionizer (Ron Leibman) and with increasing courage and determination, Norma Rae organizes her fellow factory workers to fight for better conditions and wages. Based on a true story, "Norma Rae" is the mesmerizing tale of a modern day heroine. Beau Bridges co-stars. "Coming Home": Perhaps the most powerful picture ever made about the shattering aftermath of the Vietnam War, "Coming Home" earned eight Academy Award(R) nominations and three Oscars(R): Actress (Jane Fonda), Actor (Jon Voight) and Original Screenplay. Hailed by critics as "dazzling" (Rex Reed), "gripping" (Leonard Maltin) and "unforgettable" (Judith Crist), it is a heart-rending examination of a critical period in our nation's history and "an uncompromising, extraordinarily moving film" (Roger Ebert). When Marine Captain Bob Hyde (Bruce Dern) leaves for Vietnam, his wife, Sally (Fonda), volunteers at a local hospital. There she meets Luke Martin (Voight) a former sergeant whose war injury has left him a paraplegic. Embittered with rage and filled with frustration, Luke finds new hope and confidence through his growing intimacy with Sally. The relationship also transforms Sally's feelings about life, love and the horrors of war. And when, wounded and disillusioned, Sally's husband returns home, all three must grapple with the full impact of a brutal, distant war that has changed their lives forever.
