Since this was Dolly's first acting gig in a movie, she thought she was supposed to memorize the whole script - AND SHE DID. And not just her part, she memorized eveything!
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin fell into fits of laughter when Dolly Parton told them she thought a movie was filmed scene-by-scene, the order it was written in the screenplay!

When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
