Back in 1974, the country music star was part of an elaborate Candid Camera gag. After "twisting her ankle," Dolly asked men to carry her to her car — but, dang it, she couldn't remember where her parking spot was.
If you're a kid of the '80s, you probably caught the 1983 episode of Alvin and the Chipmunks featuring Dolly. The superstar made a guest appearance when Alvin entered a singing contest hoping to win a duet with his favorite singer (guess who).
Sylvester Stallone and Dolly in <em>Rhinestone</em>
This campy 1984 classic teamed up Dolly with Sylvester Stallone. In the film, country singer Dolly makes a bet with her sleazy nightclub boss that she can turn anyone into a country music star — including an uncouth New York cabbie played by Sly. Hijinks ensue.
Dolly often collaborated with her good friend, fellow country star Barbara Mandrell. Dolly played herself in a cheesy TV movie about Mandrell's life, while Mandrell guest-starred on Dolly's short-lived '80s variety show.
Dolly Parton makes an appearance in the film <em>Miss Congeniality 2</em>
Many Dolly fans know that she's the godmother of queer superstar Miley Cyrus. Dolly featured Cyrus's father, Billie Ray, in one of her videos and hit it off with the family. At the 25th anniversary of Dollywood — Dolly's Tennessee amusement park — Miley showed up and guested on a duet of "Jolene."
