An Amazing Experience
21 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

okay, by giving this film a rating of 10, perhaps I am showing an extreme bias here... I was part of this terrific film, oh so many years ago, and I can honestly say that it was one of the most enjoyable moments of my acting career. Although I was only 5 at the time, being on the set with this amazing cast truly made an impact on me. I was able to keep in touch with Tammy Wynette for many years afterward, and she had always been the most gracious woman, even inviting myself and my family backstage after attending her concerts to visit with her and her husband George Richey. Annette O'Toole was the perfect actress to portray Tammy herself, and for Ms. O'Toole to do her own singing for the film is an amazing testimony to her talent, which has no boundaries. I only hope that more people will have the opportunity to see this film, and feel inspired by this amazing woman who overcame so many different obstacles in her life, but letting nothing or nobody stand in her way. On a personal note, "Stand By Your Man" will always hold a special place in my heart, and I will always cherish the memories of my involvement in this wonderful production.
