Once Sally got beyond the perky characters of her early TV career, her childhood struggles to stand up for herself became something to draw on for deeper, sometimes darker roles.She played a student with multiple personality disorder in the 1976 TV movie Sybil, a resolute union organizer in Norma Rae, for which she won her first Oscar, and a desperate Southern widow in Places in the Heart (which brought her Oscar number two).Looking at the photos, it's incredible to realize that Sally had her own TV series before she was 20 and two kids before she was 25.For a child born in Pasadena, California, to an actress, Hollywood might not seem a large leap. Her mother, Margaret Field, divorced Sally's father, U. Army captain Richard Dryden Field, when Sally was 4; Margaret then married stuntman Jock Mahoney (his stage name, changed from O'Mahoney), a volatile stepfather whom Sally feared yet whom she credits for forcing her to learn to survive.The hallways and shelves are filled with photos that span four decades of Sally's life.In one shot, she beams as her eldest son, Peter Craig, then a toddler, sits on her shoulders; another frame holds the TV Guide cover of Sally in The Flying Nun, a comedy beloved by viewers but the cause of much angst for its star.
She also became more noticeable to other producers in the industry.
More than a home, it's a retreat for Sally, now 61 and single, and her mother, who lives with Sally.
