    Valley of the dolls is one of the greatest movies of all time. i am tired of people calling this a "camp movie". I have noticed throughout my life this is how real people act over the top and overly dramatic. Most real life people do not live like Little house on the prairie or Miracle on 34th st. REAL LIFE REAL PROBLEMS. alochol and drug problems - infedelity - mental illness - physical illness. Valley of the dolls is dramatized reality. I see a lot of dramatized reality on this planet. Valley of the dolls is a classic. no debate

    So Bad YOu Can't Stop Watching

    Susann's compilation of typing became a super duper blockbuster so it was inevitable that it would be sold to the movies. It was so bad Susann herself hated it and she had a bit role. Patty Duke singing in the nuthouse with Tony Scotti is the biggest hoot since Edward G Robinson's performance in THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. Barbara Parkins disappeared from the scene after this movie and we all know what happened to poor Sharon Tate. Only Susan Hayward is any good but hers is a cameo role. But it is one of those secret pleasures we should not enjoy (like Twinkies) but we can't help ourselves.

    Watch often

    I didn't pay that much attention to the movie until basically after the book Helter Skelter came out. I wanted to see some of the works of Sharon Tate. I think during the time it came out it was geniunely under-rated. It was the first brash movie for that time period of the 60's. I was very young when it came out, so I had to wait about 5 to 10 years to appreciate it. A lot of the people I know didn't care for the movie. They considered it a flop. I am one of those who totally disagree. I like Parkins, Duke and especially Tate. Its regrettable that her role was quite a bit smaller than Duke and Parkins. Its is sad that Tate didn't get her notoriety until her death. She had to pay such a high price for her fame. This country still hasn't totally recovered from her grissley death. I give this movie about a 4 star rating. It was a movie that made America grow up! A lot of the movies in that decade were sugary. After that movie or maybe a little before The Graduate made its debut. Innocence was gone from then on too the present time.
