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

Cynthia Myers was just stupendously pretty.
|by Anonymous||reply 3||05/09/2013|
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.

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.

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

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!)

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?

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.

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!!!

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!!!!"

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.

What movie is the equivalent to Beyond the Valley of the Dolls?
|by Anonymous||reply 36||08/03/2013|
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
|by Anonymous||reply 37||09/23/2013|
Stylistically, it's more like Myra Breckenridge, which was also made by 20th Century-Fox around the same time.
|by Anonymous||reply 38||09/23/2013|
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 Anonymous||reply 39||09/24/2013|
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 Anonymous||reply 40||09/24/2013|
There were lesbian love scenes in films like THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGE (1968) and foreign films like THERESE & ISABELLE (1968).

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.
