An Emmy Worthy Performance By Annette O'Toole
10 October 2003 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

This film ranks right up there with the other country biographical films such as "Sweet Dreams" and "Coal Miner's Daughter".

I found it to be an extraordinary biography with an Emmy worthy performance by Annette O'Toole.

Unfortunately at this time it is not available on home video. I was able to record a copy from one of the movie channels. If you have an opportunity to see this fine film. don't miss it.
