Editor's Note
Director Daniel Petrie's awe-inspiring and brutal drama, based on a real-life story, made television history when it was originally aired in 1977. Sally Field gives an outstanding award-winning performance as Sybil, a disturbed young woman who suffers from multiple personality behavior. Living alone in a New York apartment, Sybil is tormented by flashbacks and visions of her extremely painful childhood. Unable to live a normal life, she meets Dr. Cornelia Wilbur (Joanne Woodward), a kindhearted psychiatrist who becomes committed to helping Sybil heal the incredible wounds that haunt her. Desperate to make Sybil understand her illness, Dr. Wilbur begins a series of treatments and uncovers the 16 personalities that make up the fractured personalities of Sybil. Forced to face unspeakable torture at the hands of her mother (Jane Hoffman), Sybil is slowly able to heal her inner self with the support, guidance, and love of Dr. Wilbur. The incredible 11-year odyssey of these two brave women is brought to the screen with powerful and deeply moving performances by Field and Woodward. Together they portray a deeply touching and inspiring true story of love and determination conquering pain and isolation.

"[The film] launched Field as a serious actress. Today, SYBIL still packs one helluva punch." -- Grade: A- 07/21/2006 p.56

Home Theater Info DVD Review 9 of 10
This is the 198 minute version rarely if ever seen since 1976. Most of the times you happened to catch this on television you either the 122 theatrical edit or the 'expanded' 132 cut. The full screen video does show some signs of age, this is the thirtieth anniversary after all. While some little flecks appear now and again this is the best this film has been seen since it first appeared. The color balance was a touch muted but that actually works with the content. The mono audio is clear letting every word of the all important dialogue to be heard. I was enthralled by the book and couldn't wait to see this on television. Now, thirty years later I can now add this to an honored place in my video collection. This is a must have.
