The title character Patsy, is named after Patsy Cline and during the film she refers to watching a film about the life of Patsy Cline - Coal Miners Daughter. But Coal Miner's Daughter (1980) is about 'Loretta Lynne'. See more »
Bush boy Ralph plans to travel to the big smoky city, catch a flight to Nashville and bingo! A new country singer star is born. But, unfortunately for him, he meets up with fast talking Boyd and sweet Patsy. The law gets a whiff of them and the boys end up in a country jail, hence the title. For young Ralph this becomes an experience that will improve his country music lyrics about standard issues of prison, women and the hard life. A pleasant comedy that wobbles on its legs towards the end. Roxburgh excels as Boyd, helped with a fine script by Kennedy. The catchy song is a bonus.
