Movies Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, The (1982, Dolly Parton, Burt Reynolds) Published 7 months ago on October 20, 2018 Boisterous film version of the hit Broadway musical about the Chicken Ranch, a cozy Texas brothel run by a madam (Dolly Parton), who has a long-running relationship with the local sheriff (Burt Reynolds). Trouble looms for the happy couple when authorities threaten to shut down the place. Charles Durning (nominated for an Academy Award) has a star turn as the all-singing, all-dancing Texas governor. The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas was not Burt Reynolds’ first shot at musical comedy. He had earlier starred in Peter Bogdanovich’s flop homage to Thirties musicals, At Long Last Love (1975). https://youtube.com/watch?v=z3uX58tQ7mQ production details USA | 114 minutes | 1982 Director: Colin Higgins Producers: Robert L.
