Sybil

emmy dorsett leonard rosenman

(NBC, 11/14/1976 and 11/15/1976, 2 Parts, 120 mins each, 4 hours). An acclaimed four-hour production (Emmy Award winner as Outstanding Special) in which Sally Field won an Emmy as Best Actress for playing a young woman so disturbed by childhood experiences that she develops 16 distinct personalities. A third Emmy Award went to Stewart Stern for his teleplay, and a fourth was given for the score by Leonard Rosenman and lyricists Alan and Marilyn Bergman. Of interest is that Joanne Woodward, here playing the psychiatrist, gave her own Oscar-winning performance as a similar multi-personality woman in “Three Faces of Eve” (1957), and was Emmy-nominated for her role here, losing to her costar. Cinematographer Mario Tosi also received an Emmy nomination. Adapted from the 1973 book by Flora Rheta Schreiber.
