“They drummed you out of Hollywood, so you come running back to Broadway. Well, Broadway doesn’t go for booze and dope. Now get out of my way. I’ve got a man waiting for me.” —Helen Lawson, Valley of the Dolls
Presenting the Excellently hysterical trailer for the 1967 film Valley of the Dolls, based on the 1966 best-selling roman-a-clef by the same name, one of the most commercially successful novels of all time, by Her Excellency Jacqueline Susann, directed by Mark Robson and starring Barbara Parkins, Patty Duke, Susan Hayward, Sharon Tate (beautiful yet oomed wife of Roman Polanski, who was eight and a half months pregnant when she was gruesomely murdered in her and Polanski’s Benedict Canyon home in Los Angles on August 9, 1969, along with four others, by followers of Charles Manson), and Paul Burke as Lyon.
