Valley of the Dolls

Valley of the Dolls ★★ 1967 (PG)

Camp/trash classic was rated as a bomb by many critics but is really of the so-bad-it's-good variety. Three beauties, Jennifer (Tate), Neely (Duke), and Anne (Parkins), dream of Hollywood stardom but fall victim to Hollywood excess, including drug dependency (the “dolls” of the title). There's unhappy love affairs, porno parts, health risks, and hysterics of various kinds—all designed to have you dropping your jaw in disbelief. The bathroom scene between Duke and Hayward involving a wig is not to be missed. Based on the novel by Jacqueline Susann who has a bit part as a reporter. Remade for TV as “Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls” in 1981. 123m/C VHS, DVD .

Harris, Robert Viharo, Joey Bishop, George Jessel, Richard Dreyfuss; Cameos: Jacqueline Susann; D: Mark Robson; W: Dorothy Kingsley, Helen Deutsch, Jacqueline Susann; C: William H.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
