Big Dreams & Broken Hearts: Dottie West Story (1995) DVD Michele Lee
Big Dreams & Broken Hearts:
The Dottie West Story
The movie chronicles the basic life and rise to fame of country music singer Dottie West (Lee). It starts off with West as a young child, and her abusive father, then leading to her first big break on the Landmark Jamboree television show in Ohio in the early 50s. The movie then moves to the 60s where West skyrockets to fame as a country music singer with the Top 10 hit "Here Comes My Baby Back Again", which then leads to West winning a Grammy Award in 1965, becoming the first female country singer to win a Grammy. The movie continues providing the highs and lows of West's career, including her new image in the late-70s, where West has her biggest success dueting with Kenny Rogers (who plays himself in the movie). The movie also chronicles some of West's personal problems, including her three marriages and her financial problems, culminating in West dying at the end of the movie in a car accident.
