Sally Field
Actress, The Way West (1967)
Dreadful. The shrill, unodulated quality of her voice is aggravated here by her thick, corn-pone accent, and her performance is all mannerisms and superfluous gestures.
(Damien Bona, Opening Shots)
Actress, Steel Magnolias (1989)
The big disappointment is Sally Field, who fails to have a single natural moment as M'Lynn, her accent wandering all over the place (but then, so did those in Gone With the Wind: Bad Southern accents are a proud tradition of Hollywood movies) and her Big Scene toward the end of the movie coming across as little more than a bid for a third Oscar.
(Bruce Bawer, American Spectator)
