In 1962, Sally Field made her film debut via an uncredited appearance in the movie, Moon Pilot. From here she followed up her acting work with further appearances in films such as The Way WestMaybe I’ll Come Home in the Spring, and Westward the Wagon.

To begin with, her on-screen roles were small parts, which is true of any actor in show business, but soon her star status grew as audiences took the actor to their hearts. This in turn increased Field’s presence on the big screen, and pushed her career toward the icon she would eventually become.

Over the years, Field popped up in classic movies such as Steel Magnolias and Punchline. She also appeared opposite Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire, and alongside Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump.
