last night I watched coal miner's daughter.  I've seen it many times and still watch it everytime it's on the television.  anyway as I was watching it.... I realized for the first time that loretta's daddy in the movie was played by none other than levon helm. For those of you who don't know who Mr. Helm is...Well he is the drummer/singer for THE BAND. They used to be bob dylan's band before they went on to become THE BAND.  anyway...so not only should you watch coal miner's daughter (in which sissy spacek won an Oscar) you should also watch the last waltz. It is the band in their last show.  it was directed by martin scorsese and includes many special guests: BOB DYLAN  ERIC CLAPTON  NEIL YOUNG  JONI MITCHELL 
VAN MORRISON  NEIL DIAMOND  EMMYLOU HARRIS  MUDDY WATERS  
THE STAPLES  RINGO STARR  RON WOOD DR.JOHN PAUL BUTTERFIELD RONNIE HAWKINS   

Starring: THE BAND....
RICK DANKO LEVON HELM GARTH HUDSON RICHARD MANUEL   ROBBIE ROBERTSON
