Murphy's Romance Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Robert Lane

Director Martin Ritt (Norma Rae) helmed this offbeat romance that earned costar James Garner an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of a widowed druggist who befriends a confused divorcee (Sally Field) and her son, who move to a small rural town to start over. The laid-back performance of Garner as a man finding love "for the last time in his life" contrasts wonderfully with Field's portrayal of a woman scared and unsure of what the future may hold for her, and the two of them together exhibit great comic timing. As well written and as deftly performed as any movie of its type, Murphy's Romance will rope you in with its winning style.

Academy Awards

Murphy's Romance received Academy Awards nominations for Actor (James Garner) and Cinematography (William A. Fraker).
