|The film was promoted in different countries in different ways, the Belgian poster is over the top sex and lust.|
|Patty Duke overacted a little as Neely, but she is simply wonderful. Neely was based on the young Judy Garland.|
|Susan Hayward plays Helen Lawson ( based on Broadway star Ethel Merman) after Judy Garland left the film.|
|Anne starts as a secretary, gets discovered, and becomes a high fashion model... gets addicted to dolls.|
|The author Jackie Susann, invented the modern day bestselling blockbuster novel as we know it. Truman Capote rudely described her as a "truck driver in drag". All her bestsellers are great reading, and the movies made from those books, a lot of fun.|
For me Valley of the Dolls is the ultimate camp movie experience. Its the movie thats so bad, its wonderful, to the extent its now a cult classic. Glamorous, bitchy, high fashion, drugs and booze, sex romps, the lives of these three girls as they claw their way to the top is simply an exhilarating experience to watch.
