Joe Academy Award Nomination! 

By (United Artists)

This hard-hitting melodrama, directed by John Avildsen (Rocky), is the uncompromising account of how an average "Joe" becomes a murderer. It made Peter Boyle a star, and "hardhat" a household word. It's a strong drama sparked with humor, and a lasting social document. In a collision of cultures, an odd friendship grows between a businessman (Dennis Patrick) and a blue-collar welder (Boyle) as they search for the businessman's runaway daughter (Susan Sarandon). They are thrust into the midst of the counter-culture, a shocking and humiliating experience that ends in senseless acts of violence.

Academy Awards

Joe received an Academy Awards nomination for Writing (Best Story and Screenplay based on factual material or material not previously published or produced; Norman Wexler).
