MOOCH GOES TO HOLLYWOOD
1971, 51 min, Dir: Richard Erdman

Higgins, the dog who rose from a Burbank animal shelter to international stardom as BENJI, plays against age, type and gender as the title character, a young ingénue seeking fame and fortune in sleazy counter-culture, early-1970s Hollywood. Part MIDNIGHT COWBOY, part VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, this TV movie follows Mooch through her discovery of strip clubs and Cesar Romero, the Playboy Mansion and psychedelic drug parties, haircuts from Felipe of “Three’s Company,” and motorcycle rides with Vincent Price. Narrated by Richard Burton (and then suddenly not), with fabulous voice-over work by the one and only Zsa Zsa Gabor and appearances by Mickey Rooney, Edward G. Robinson, Jill St. John, Rose Marie, Jim Backus, Phyllis Diller and more!
