I''m watching Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

So far its coming across as the live action version of Josie and the Pussycats, but Harris is very hot in that 1970s way.

That is my favorite movie. My favorite characters are Casey and Roxanne.

Cynthia Myers was just stupendously pretty.

by Anonymousreply 305/09/2013

She certainly was, r3. Cynthia Myers has passed on since then. She died over a year ago. I loved her portrayal of Casey Anderson.

Casey: Could I Just Have One Of Your Dolls?

Roxanne: Not before it could be dangerous.

Still hard to believe that the script was written by, of all people, Roger Ebert.

Is it on TV right now? Which channel?

It was showing while I was in the Navy in San diego. this nasty superior petty officer called me Super Woman!

Barbara Harris?

Dolly Read was wonderful as Kelly.

Dolly Read's accent was so on and off. But the whole thing was a riot.

Damn, Michael Blodgett was hot. Too bad what happened to his character in this crazy flick.

You're a groovy boy. I'd like to strap you on sometime.

I liked a lot the soundtrack of this movie. Very, very melodic. Nice music. There is also a tender lesbian scene which works out well. However, don't expect too much from this movie. It is interesting though, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

by Anonymousreply 1607/24/2013

It can best be described as a Playboy cartoon version on acid of VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, with girl rockers instead of actresses/models.

Did you tell him "You shall taste the black sperm of my vengeance!"?

by Anonymousreply 1907/24/2013

R18, thank you! You are very sweet. I like it!

However from this soundtrack, i love the instrumental parts the most.

I Need You So Very Much/Checkmate composed by Stu Phillips as well is for me the best touch of this soundtrack

Below i sent you a link with this track. When you click the link, you will find the track i'm referring to at the end of the page and not at the beginning. It writes OST/Stu Phillips - I Need You So Very Much (Checkmate) (From Original Soundtrack "Beyond The Valley). You can listen it for free. (Of course you may already have the soundtrack, so in that case, i guess you won't be bothered!)

Friendly kisses!

Oh yes, of course I have the soundtrack CD! Trivia: Lynne Carey, daughter of Days Of Our Lives star Macdonald Carey, provided the rich singing voice of Kelly in the film. For complicated legal reasons I still don't get, they had to use the vocal tracks of a different, inferior singer for the soundtrack album. Disappointing, as I'd been wanting to get my hands on these songs for decades.

Doesn't this end with one of the girls giving a blowjob to a gun? Which is then fired into her mouth?

by Anonymousreply 2207/24/2013

R21, I have the soundtrack CD as well but it has both versions, the one used on the original soundtrack album and the Lynn Carey vocals.

by Anonymousreply 2307/25/2013

Yes, r22 but Roxanne was asleep while Z-Man puts the gun in her mouth and she wakes up screaming then Z-Man pulls the trigger. Splat!!!

I wished that Roxanne would have fought off Z-Man and run off in the sunset with Casey.

I never knew Michael Blodgett was Meredith Baxter's third husband. He sure was pretty, even into his old age.

Marcia McBroom is no longer in the business. She is a schoolteacher these days.

by Anonymousreply 3208/02/2013

Well, R32, it's not like she was much of an actress, pretty as she was. Just a Playboy model.

But she does have that wonderful line, "It doesn't have a HEAD!!!!"

by Anonymousreply 3308/02/2013

As I recall the gay characters had unhappy endings. That may have been par for the course at the time but it takes away a lot of the otherwise campy enjoyment the movie provides.

by Anonymousreply 3408/02/2013

True, r34.

What movie is the equivalent to Beyond the Valley of the Dolls?

by Anonymousreply 3608/03/2013

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

by Anonymousreply 3709/23/2013

Stylistically, it's more like Myra Breckenridge, which was also made by 20th Century-Fox around the same time.

by Anonymousreply 3809/23/2013

Sort of, R38. But if you've ever seen any other Russ Meyer films, you'd see that it's bigger-budget version of the kind of thing he did before.

I don't think there is any movie equivalent to this one - not even ROCKY HORROR.

by Anonymousreply 3909/24/2013

I caught this one late night on cable TV. I was shocked by the lesbian scene (wasn't that considered risque by 1971 standards)? Any movies with equivalent gay-male scenes from that era?

by Anonymousreply 4009/24/2013

There were lesbian love scenes in films like THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGE (1968) and foreign films like THERESE & ISABELLE (1968).

by Anonymousreply 4109/24/2013

I wished that the love scene between Erica Gavin and Cynthia Myers would have been longer. My two cents.

I love this movie! It's sort of like Ebert wrote an insane comedy, but no one told the actors, so they play it completely straight.

Makes VOTD seem as good as Citizen Kane

by Anonymousreply 5405/26/2016

Valley of The Dolls, Beyond The Valley of The Dolls, and Myra Breckinridge would be the perfect triple feature.

I've seen better writing and acting in movies he hated.
