Coal Miner's Daughter

Correction: In the credits, at the end of the movie, it sites that only Sissy Spacek did her own singing.

Corrected entry: When Loretta Lynn discovers she is pregnant (twins) and tells Patsy Cline, she says she hasn't hasn't had a baby since she was fourteen. Considering she had four other children before the twins, that would mean she must have been 8 when she had her first child. A bit confusing when she didn't get married to Dolittle Lynn until she was 14 and that was when she fell pregnant the first time.

Correction: Loretta tells Patsy that "she's been having babies since she was 14" not that "she hasn't hasn't had a baby since she was fourteen."

Continuity mistake: When Loretta Lynn is at the radio station asking why the disc jockey had lied to them about playing her record, you see the picture of her that they took at home. It is a completely different pose than the one that you saw them take a couple of scenes earlier. She is looking in a different direction and she is not smiling as much as she was when they took it.

Loretta Lynn: Dadgum it, Doo! You never ask me nothing! You just say, "Hey baby, here's the deal, take it or leave it." Well, it's drivin' me crazy, Doo.
Doolittle Lynn: Well, hell, then let's go up to the house, call a lawyer and get a divorce. I'm tired of this bullshit.
Loretta Lynn: I don't want no divorce! I just want the dadgum bedroom in the back of the house.
