Over the years Mark Robson's movie adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's book Valley of the Doll's has absolutely polarized viewers, there are those who either love it or hate it, indeed someone even remarked to me - "it was a bad film then and it's a bad film now." Either way, viewers are going to get lots of laughs out of this high class, quasi-exploitative romp through the world of show business and the so-called cold-blooded machinations of the people who make it all happen.

The film is certainly lurid and shapeless and hackneyed, and a real hodgepodge of subplots that never real gel into an organized whole. But the movie is also audacious and camp, today it's most notable for being unintentionally funny without trying to be - and now finally out on DVD - it serves as a great window into late 60's fashions and hairdos and home furnishings.

The story tells of three women and their respective careers in show business, tracing their assorted egotistical aspirations, love affairs, and of course, their addiction to pills. The lovely small-town girl Anne Wells (Barbara Parkins) travels to the big city and finds work as a secretary. Here she meets the impulsive, hot-blooded young star Neely O'Hara (Patty Duke).

Neely is threatening to upstage current Broadway diva, the super b*tch Helen Lawson (Susan Hayward) and Helen will stop at nothing to secure her prominence at the top. Running parallel to this is the story of the beautiful Jennifer North (Sharon Tate) who ends up marrying saloon singer Tony Polar (Tony Scotti). Of course, fame and money eventually come to all three, but at a terrible price.

Perhaps it is fragile Neely who pays for it the most.

What more could one ask for? Valley of the Dolls took itself seriously with hilarious effects. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (supposedly not related) was more of a spoof that played straight with seriously hilarious effects. Both are camp classics and at this price, this DVD is nearly impossible to pass up.

how could you not like this film?there were many reasons why i wanted to watch this film,firstly because of the late Sharon tate, secondly because it's a cult classic and because it looked like a great movie to watch.
despite what many say i thought the acting was brilliant patty duke shines as the loud but beautiful neily o'hara,Barbara Parkins stars as the innocent Anne wells and of course the tragic star Sharon tate stars as the beautiful and kind hearted Jenifer north, with a great cast and a great story this film is worth watching

Blistering, frantic, hysterical double-bill: First movie, 'Valley..', a hard, not-so-fond look at the plusses and perils of stardom, and the second...

'Beyond..', Russ Meyer's satirical collection of substance freaks; sex-obsessed fan-girls; voracious, bent establishmentarians; beaten-into-submission hypochondriacs, and psychotic, tranny megalomaniacs.
What a blinding film it is. Possibly the greatest ever !! A film so about 197o - and gradually more about every year since.. So over-the-top it's prophetic, so on-the-button it's scary.

The Carrie Nations : all-girl pop group, daughters of the field - - dream-like and cerebral, knockers like freedom-fighter watermelons - - corrupted by satanic r'n'r and it's despondent, neurotic, free-loading followers. Watch the rabble scramble !
Utilising mammiferous porn sylphs Dolly Read, Cynthia Myers and Marcia McBroom (all great !) as his angels of provocation, Meyer gets it back out and wallops it to the absolute max. The 6o's, that is..
But this is no fond adieu to Monroe/Kennedy and Vietnam; liberalisation and the counter-culture.. Meyer blows the lot into posterity with a mighty jet of reflux. A fitting fate.
It's incredible how much of this raillery he fits into 1o5 mins - considering all the sex and violence he's got to squeeze it in between ! That he does it so abundantly and brilliantly is a credit both to himself and co-screenwriter, Roger Ebert (!).

The rank cult of celebrity is stunned, bled, skinned and gutted right in front of our incredulous eyes ! By proxy, every fast buck hanger-on that ever drew breath is mercilessly quartered. Dodgy bedroom deal-makers and back-stabbers are ruthlessly deconstructed.

Two good films, similar in a dissimilar sort of way. Beyond the valley of the Dolls is NOT a sequel to Valley of the Dolls. It even says so at the beginning of BTVOTD so there should be no confusion there, but both are about the ups and downs of the lives of a group of 3 women. I must I bought the films as the first featured the tragic and beautiful Sharon Tate and the second featured one of the top Playboy playmates Cynthia Myers........I know I'm shallow, what can I tell you!.

OK, this has a good transfer and audio with subtitles and good price. Only problem is the 2.35:1 AR that is letterboxed in 4:3. Passable in 2004 but with anamorphic releases in 2006/2007 this 2004 release no longer cuts the mustard.
