Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

This trashy, gaudy, sound-stage vulgarity about low life among the high life is as funny as a burning orphanage.

This trashy, gaudy, sound-stage vulgarity about low life among the high life is as funny as a burning orphanage.

Dolly Read, Cynthia Myers and Marcia McBroom head a busty cast as three pop singers who come to swinging Hollywood with manager David Gurian. Read has determined to pry some inheritance money from aunt Phyllis Davis, who runs with a super-groovy set, shepherded by John La Zar, a Shakespeare-spouting effete.

Michael Blodgett plays a film hero louse, Edy Williams a sex goddess, Erica Gavin the obligatory lesbian, and Duncan McLeod an unscrupulous lawyer. The sole good running gag involves Williams and Gurian; she’s ready for sex any place except in bed.
