In 1976, at the age of 15, she was cast by Terrence Malick to play the young narrator in his second film Days of Heaven, which was released in 1978. Manz's part was initially smaller than planned, however Malick was so impressed by her that he invited her to provide the narration of the film, which appeared in the final cut. Manz then appeared in the 1979 film The Wanderers, directed by Philip Kaufman, and played the lead in the Dennis Hopper film Out of the Blue. She appeared in a small role as a robber girl in the Faerie Tale Theatre episode "The Snow Queen".
