Smackdown '77: Melinda, Leslie, Tuesday, Quinn, and Vanessa Redgrave

31 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Presenting the Supporting Actress Nominees of '77. A mother with extraterrestrial problems, a highly neurotic swinger, a wealthy political activist, a precocious daughter, and a timid ballerina.
