Sally Field gave a great performance in this movie. I think thisfilm gave as accurate a depiction of dissociative identity disorder as they could for the time. I actually don't know that anyone now could really do a job that much better than Field's. I suppose it did have some of that cheesy 1976 cinematography at times, but really not a bad movie at all.
