19 January 2016 2:10 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Happy 70th to Dolly Parton, the most approachable of unapproachable superstars

19 January 2016 11:02 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy 70th birthday to that life-affirming, effervescent, and consummate pro Dolly Parton. The legendary songstress' career is astonishing on every level, and the woman herself seems to treat her success as a wild and hilarious lark that she never, ever takes for granted. It's hard to know where to begin when toasting such a pop culture mainstay, so I'll be jumping around her career with underrated and unexpectedly fantastic moments and videos to commemorate her awesomeness. From her songwriting to her singing to her acting to her endless charisma, Dolly Parton has been the most approachable of our unapproachable superstars. Here are just a few more reasons she's divine. 1. She will astound you with her touching, Oscar-nominated jam "Travelin' Thru" 2. "Bargain Store" is one of her quaintest, most poignant songs. 3.

It was a major motion picture when it premiered — 25 years ago today — starring one of the most-adored actors of the era, Sally Field, coming off the hit Steel Magnolias. But its $15 million opening weekend barely made a dent in the box office; it was largely critically panned for its Islamophobic undertones; and in re-airings, it could easily be mistaken for a Lifetime movie with a timely political pitch: Woman escapes from abusive Iranian husband, scary foreign country, and the evil clutches of Islam. In the larger cultural imagination, the film was consigned to oblivion. But Not Without My Daughter has its own curious legacy. Over the years, it’s been shown in schools, re-aired on television, and notoriously played in Paris the night before the 1998 USA versus Iran World Cup match. One journalist responded to »
