Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

Movie Summary

Director:
Russ Meyer
Released:
1970
Rating:
NC-17
Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is a cult classic from 1970. Written by film critic Roger Ebert, this fun film follows the rise and fall, the lives and loves, of a trio of female rockers from the Midwest and their manager Harris (David Gurian). The young women; Kelly MacNamara (Dolly Read), Casey Anderson (Cynthia Myers), and Petronella "Pet" Danforth (Marcia McBroom) move to Los Angeles in search of riches and fame. They end up trusting their success to sleazy manager Ronnie "Z-Man" Barzell (John LaZar) who immediately sets out to discredit their manager Harris, sending him into a downward spiral. All of which happens in a culture of drugs, sex and amid life-changing drama. Described as a rock and roll extravaganza of ample proportions upon release, the melodrama features music by Stu Phillips that really sets the tone and includes a performance featuring the real-life band Strawberry Alarm Clock of their hit song "Incense and Peppermints."
