40th Anniversary

Sally Field won a Best Actress OscarĀ® for her portrayal of Norma Rae, a Southern textile worker confronted with poor working conditions. Faced with challenges both personal and professional, she proves receptive to the message of a union organizer seeking to start a drive at her plant. The film is based on the real story of Crystal Lee Sutton and the ACTWU's drive to organize JP Stevens' plants in the South in the 1970s. NORMA RAE was selected for preservation at the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in 2011 for movies deemed "culturally, aesthetically or historically significant."
