The Burning Bed
In 1977, after suffering years of abuse at the hands of her brutal husband, Mickey (Paul Le Mat), Michigan housewife Francine Hughes (Farrah Fawcett) killed him one night by setting fire to him as he slept. Prosecuted with the vigor of the law, Hughes's case made legal history. Fawcett received an Emmy nomination (and proved herself a serious actress for the first time) for her role in this acclaimed television adaptation of a true story.
