A dark comedy, the 1978 film The End, starred boyfriend-girlfriend Burt Reynolds and Sally Field, along with Dom LeLuise, Robby Benson, Kristy Mc Nichol, Carl Reiner, Norman Fell, Joanne Woodward, and Myrna Loy. Field posed for a series of publicity photos ahead of the release of this film wearing a jersey with the number 22 on it. That was Burt Reynolds’ jersey number back when he played football. Many of the pics from this photoshoot crossed the line to cheesecake in nature but Burt Reynolds probably didn’t mind.

A true California girl, Sally Margaret Field was born in Pasadena on November 6, 1946. Her parents were Margaret Morlan Field and Richard Dryden Field, an Army veteran who served in World War II. Field has one brother, Richard D. Field who is a doctor and a professor. Her parents divorced in 1950 when Sally was just six-years-old. Later, her mother remarried. 

In spite of Field's total professionalism and chipper nature this beloved actress has experienced quite a bit of darkness in her life. Through it all she's remained optimistic, and she still manages to make audiences smile whenever she pops up on screen.
