Great pic of Dolly Parton with Jeff Calhoun on set of 'Best Little Whorehouse in Texas'

So I'm interviewing director Jeff Calhoun about the national production of "9 to 5" for a story to advance its Oct. 26-31 run at the Straz in Tampa.

We get talking about working with Dolly Parton and he's gushing about this cool pic he took with her the first time they worked together, when he played a bit part in the 1982 hit film "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas."

The photo he sent me apparently went to my junk email and I kinda forgot about it. But when I met Calhoun at the Ringling International Arts Festival — he's in Sarasota directing "Bonnie & Clyde" musical that opens Nov. 12 — the actor/director/choreographer was adamant about me seeing the pic and resent it from his phone.

Anyway, here it is... Thanks, Jeff!

FYI: He sent copies of the pic out to family during the holidays. The writing is him wishing "Mom + Pops" a "Merry Christmas '81."
