Dolly Parton's first publicity photo


Well, she's in there somewhere. Actually, I don't think you could mistake that sweet face for anyone else, no matter how unfamiliar we are with Dolly at that age and stage.

I'm stunned! I think she looks just like Ellen Degeneris! Don't you see that?
Also- I love that wrist watch.

Steph: still is.

Mama: I think she looks a little like Summer.

Ms. Moon said...

And a lot more like Ellen Degeneris.

downtown guy said...

I guess kinda.

My first thought was, "She looks like a boy!", and then I thought, "She looks so young!" According to Wikipedia, she was born in 1946, so that would make her 13 here.

Great picture!

I wonder what she sounded like at 13.

This is a cool find, my brothah.

downtown guy said...

I'd never seen one like it, that's for sure.

Ms. Moon said...

I'll bet she sounded like an angel at thirteen.

downtown guy said...

I don't doubt that a minute.
