Valley Of The Dolls







Hi readers! Big day today so I'm posting a few shots from what I imagine to be the casting call for a post-modern Valley Of The Dolls. Hollywood doesn't go for booze and pills! Read Lovely Me (Barbara Seaman), the fantastic biography of Jackie Susann. In the small world file, Jackie and her friend Rex Reed almost went to the party where Sharon Tate was murdered by Charles Manson. The only thing that saved them was that Jackie had a headache. Of course, Sharon Tate starred in the movie version of Valley of the Dolls. Creepy world after all.

Hi Sexy, Valley of the dolls was totally forbidden, but I snuck and read it at age 14. I think you look like Neely. I love the "sleep cure" diet. xoxo

I was in "Myra Breckinridge." That was almost as bad as what happened to Sharon Tate.--R. Reed

I wanted to be Myron Breckinridge.

Promise never, ever to watch Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Such a betrayal!

I keep Valley right next to my copy of Peyton Place.

So, a big day? xo
