Valley of the Dolls (1967)

US 123m, Colour
Director: Mark Robson; Cast: Barbara Parkins, Patty Duke, Sharon Tate, Susan Hayward, Lee Grant

valley_of_the_dollsValley of the Dolls is the story of Neely, Jennifer, and Anne, three young women involved in show business whose lives eventually come undone when they turn to prescription drugs and alcohol to deal with problems arising from the pressures of fame, strained relationships and health issues. Based on the 1966 Jacqueline Susann novel of the same name, widely panned by critics, and often referred to as a campy version of the original story, Valley of the Dolls is nevertheless an entertaining film for the very fact that it is unintentionally over-the-top (Klaus Ming April 2013).
