On October 02, 1977, Meryl Streep’s very first film appearance released US theaters, Fred Zinneman’s “Julia”. The drama about the friendship between Julia (Vanessa Redgrave) and Lilian Hellman (Jane Fonda) would go on to receive 11 Academy Award nominations and win 3 – for Best Screenplay, Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Jason Robards and Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Vanessa Redgrave. If you’ve never seen Redgrave’s infamous acceptance speech, this is you chance to do it. Much can be said about the film and very little about Meryl, because almost all of her scenes ended up on the cutting room floor. You can read the whole backstory on Meryl’s casting and the role of Ann-Marie Travers on Julia’s career page. All pictures in the photo gallery have been updated in better resolution and a new fantastic production still has been added as well. So, from today on, one can say that Meryl Streep is entertaining us with movies for 40 years!
