If I was an entertainment contributor for a network news program like CBS Sunday Morning or Good Morning America on ABC, I'd like to interview 2-time Best Actress Oscar winner Sally Field about her memories of working with Julie Harris.
After her ABC sitcom work as Gidget and The Flying Nun, Field stretched herself dramatically in ABC made-for-TV movies. One of my favorites is a yuletide thriller she made in 1972.
Harris' First Lady was on stage and on national television. Field's was on film in Lincoln.
Home for the Holidays starring Julie Harris, Eleanor Parker, Jessica Walter, Jill Haworth, Walter Brennan and young Sally Field was a wickedly fun murder mystery. It was written by Joseph Stefano, the writer who gave us one of the best, most memorable, most famous and most influential screenplays that was never nominated for an Oscar.
He also wrote to classic screenplay to Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho.
