In 1995 Mark Bego released the book "I fall to pieces - The music
and the life of Patsy Cline".
"Patsy Cline - Singing Girl from the Shenendoah Valley" (1996),

"The Real Patsy Cline" by Doug Hall.
This book is based on the video biographies

(Thanks, Doug, for mentioning my site in the book!)
"Love Always, Patsy - Patsy Cline's Letters to a Friend".
This book, by Cindy Hazen and Mike Freeman, contains
the letters that Patsy wrote to Treva Miller, the founder
of the first Patsy Cline Fan Club, and eventually Patsy's
close friend and confidante.
"Coal Miner's Daughter" is Loretta Lynn's biography
about her own life. The movie with the same name,
starring Sissy Spacek as Loretta, is based on this book,
and Patsy plays an important role in Loretta's life.
The picture to the left shows the March 1980 issue,

Phil Hunter's booklet "Crazy Over Patsy"
Besides the many different biographies about Patsy Cline,
there are two documentaries on video that are also very interesting,
"The Real Patsy Cline" (1986) and "Remembering Patsy" (1993),
pictured below. Both videos are shown with alternate covers.
In March 2001 a new DVD, "Legends of Country", was released,
And, of course, the movie about Patsy's life, "Sweet Dreams",
released in 1985 and starring Jessica Lange as Patsy and
Ed Harris as Charlie. The movie was re-released on video in
late December, 1998. When the movie was first released, in 1985,
there was also a book released, with the same name, in conjunction
with the movie. Author's credit is given to George Vecsey and
Leonore Fleisher, but it is really nothing more than an enhanced
version of the movie's script, which was written by Robert Getchell.
