A Relative Opinion
12 April 2000 | by (Portsmouth RI) – See all my reviews

As an avid fan of celebrity biographies I truly enjoyed this production of Stand by Your Man. My great-niece, Dyan Hobday Brant, appeared in the movie portraying Tammy Wynette's daughter Gwen as a youngster.

The family has said that Ms. Wynette was a gracious person, remembering Dyan and her family long after the movie had been completed. Kudos to all involved in the making of this fine film.
