WORK ETHIC: Fonda succinctly summed up the pic’s ongoing appeal: “Everybody’s had a rotten boss they want to stick it to.”

Fonda also told the story of how Parton interrupted dailies to debut pic’s theme song. In lieu of a band, Parton sang a cappella and played the rhythm on her nails. “You have to have falsies to do this,” Parton said. “And the nails too.”

DVD includes a karaoke track of the song and partygoers were treated to Parton leading her co-stars in a rendition. “They were too cheap to get me a band,” she quipped.
