Amazing story and acting
Dottie West led a life that was straight from rags to riches, and back to rags again. She was born very, very poor. She was raped by her father, who later went to prison for it. She had 3 troubled marriages, 4 kids, world-wide fame, fortune, and terrible luck. After an amazing career, she found that she owed the IRS nearly $2 million dollars. She had to sell her home, and auction off everything she owned in order to pay the debt. She died an untimely death in 1991, with injuries that occured in a car accident. This film was amazing. Michele Lee did an outstanding job as Dottie. She looked like Dot, and sanf like her. The ending was a bit strange, because it never showed Dottie going to the hospital, or going through surgery. All in all, is you like biographies, watch this film. I give it a 9 out of 10.
