VeganMoFo: Coal Miner’s Daughter

I may be ignorant, but I ain’t stupid!

My affection for Coal Miner’s Daughter runs pretty deep. It was often shown on cable when I was a kid, so I watched it a lot when I didn’t like whatever titty movie Up All Night was showing that week. Also, my grandpa was a coal miner (and a farmer and a World War II vet, I am full of pride). If you do it at the right time of the month, you can make me cry by playing the song that the movie title comes from.

Coal Miner’s Daughter is the award-winning biopic about Loretta Lynn, from her childhood in a poor family in Kentucky to the height of her success in the early 70’s. Most of the movie focuses on her often rocky marriage to Doolittle Lynn, who she married when she was only fifteen. It seemed like she was doomed to a life of raising babies and keeping house for a drunken husband until he gives her a guitar for their wedding anniversary. I’m pretty sure you know that this turned into a really long music career with lots of big hair and sparkly gowns. But maybe you don’t know that Sissy Spacek and Beverly D’Angelo (as Patsy Cline) did all of their own singing! Sissy won quite a few awards for her “dumb hillbilly act”.

Starring Sissy Spacek (Carrie, Big Love), Tommy Lee Jones (Men In Black, The Fugitive), Beverly D’Angelo (National Lampoon’s Vacation movies, Entourage), and Levon Helm (from the band…The Band).

Entree: Since Loretta Lynn is a real person, and she has a cookbook, I was able to find out that one of her favorite meals is Chicken and Dumplings. (No squirrel meat here, sorry Loretta.)
Side: I don’t know what your favorite southern side is, but mine is fried okra, always and forever.
Dessert: I do NOT recommend substituting the sugar with salt in your chocolate pie, we can only take the authenticity of our movie dishes so far.
