Re: PATSY CLINE'S WIDOWER, CHARLIE DICK, PASSES AWAY
A lot of bio pics are partly fictionalized to add more sensationalism to the film. The greatest example of this would have to be "The Jolson Story", the life of singer Al Jolson. Probably about 80 percent of this film was fiction. This is a well known fact. For example, Jolson's Mother in the film was still alive when Al was in his forties. In real life, she died when he was a young boy. Jolson also had siblings in real life, and in the film, he was an only child. They were also characters in the movie that never even existed. The movie was a huge hit anyway, and I will admit that it's one of my favorite films of all time, along with the sequel "Jolson Sings Again".
