* TomHanksSyndrome: Field got started in sitcoms like ''{{Sereis/Gidget}}'', ''Series/TheFlyingNun'', ''Film/SmokeyAndTheBandit'', and ''The Girl with Something Extra''. Fed up with doing nothing but comedy, she fought for and won the title role in ''Sybil'', opposite Creator/JoanneWoodward, as a girl with multiple personalities. The role won her an Emmy. Her next venture into drama was her gritty, Academy Award-winning turn as textile worker ''Film/NormaRae'', but she was still considered a "flash in the pan" until she won her second Oscar as Edna Spalding in ''Film/PlacesInTheHeart'', which cemented her as one of America's greatest actresses and silenced the skeptics for good.

* AgeLift: On the subject of ''Franchise/SpiderMan'', the character of [[https://twitter.com/OpTicHitch/status/883223578346434560 Aunt May]] has steadily become younger in the movies. First played by then-74-year-old Creator/RosemaryHarris in the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'', then by 65-year-old Sally Field in ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'', and 51-year-old Creator/MarisaTomei in the MCU. Befittingly, she's a CluelessDudeMagnet who's hit on by everyone from Iron Man to the Thai restaurant waiter.
* AndStarring: ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' has "With Creator/MartinSheen and Sally Field". The sequel replaces Sheen with Creator/PaulGiamatti.
* CastIncest: ''Series/BrothersAndSisters'' had an alleged relationship between Creator/DavidAnnable, who played Justin, with Sally Field, his onscreen mother.
* HideYourPregnancy: Sally Field was pregnant during ''Sereis/TheFlyingNun'''s final season. Aside from [[CelibateHero the obvious problem]], the whole premise of the show is that her character can fly due to being ''very lightweight''. The usual tricks were combined with using a stunt double for flight shots.
* PostKissCatatonia: When asked about the best screen kiss she'd ever had, Sally Field -- who, it must be noted, has kissed many, ''many'' men onscreen over the course of her career -- named Creator/JamesGarner, her co-star in the 1985 romantic dramedy ''[[Film/MurphysRomance Murphy's Romance]]''. According to Field, he kissed her so well and so thoroughly that she was left dazed and unable to film for some time afterward -- the first and last time this had happened to her in her career.
