Two Hours of The Legendary Dolly
5 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Biography episode is one of the best, most detailed ones they have ever done with Dolly herself being interviewed in depth. The program is loaded with rare photographs of Dolly (including home movie footage of her as a child!) and most surprisingly, multiple pictures of her reclusive husband, Carl Dean. Dolly's a delight and it's nice to see so many of her relatives - including her beautiful, underrated baby sister Stella Parton - and there are lots of wonderful interviews with many of her contemporaries. Most of the Hollywood stars seem the most sincere and friendly in their comments (among them Lily Tomlin, Henry Winkler, Olympia Dukasis, Darryl Hannah) but I was shocked that many of the country stars come across a little fake, coy, and/or pretentious (the worst of the lot is Kathy Mattea, who is quite obnoxious with her humorless, heavy-handed analysis of the "real woman" who is under Parton's image) - how times have changed as country stars were once the most down to earth people in show business! Dolly still is and so are many country stars from her era. Dolly is of course still going strong in show business, still beautiful, not just a legend but one with many more triumphs to come in the future.
