Patsy Cline was the first female solo artist to be elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Thirty-two years after her untimely death in a plane crash in Tennessee, her "Greatest Hits" album sold over six million copies. Loved by her fans today as much - if not more - than she was at the height of her fame, the life, the loves and most of all the voice of Patsy Cline is legendary. This film tells the story of the passionate, fun-loving, soft-spoken, loud-living life of one of country music's - and one of popular music's - greatest singing stars. This film covers the years 1956 through 1963, from her rise to fame and the top of the charts through TB talent shows and country bars - through her turbulent marriage to Charlie Dick and the demands of touring which would lead to the fatal plane crash.

At one point, Charlie asks Patsy what she's done all day and she responds, "I've been sipping champagne with Kirk Douglas". When the scene was filmed Jessica Lange
actually said, "I've been sipping champagne with Rock Hudson", but Hudson was revealed to have had AIDS before the film was released and the producers thought a reference to him would be distracting. See more
When Charlie is riding his motorcycle under the bridge on his way home to see Patsy in Winchester, VA (but filmed in Martinsburg, WV), he is actually going in a direction that is "leaving" Martinsburg, WV, not entering it. See more
Well, good morning.
Oh, for heavens sake girl, sit up and take nourishment. Charlie'll have his first leave in three weeks and you walk around with your lower lip draggin' the floor in front of you. You big bawl baby. I oughta fix you a sugar tit.
