Linda Manz in ‘Days of Heaven’

Actress Linda Manz is seen in a still from the 1978 film Days of Heaven.

Suffice to say it's a bummer tale from World War I-era America, and everything ends badly. (But it's beautifully shot!) Manz's voiceover narration for the film was widely praised. Linda Manz was born in 1961, so she turned 17 the year the film was released. (She was 15 during filming, but director Terrence Malick took two years to edit the film.)
