VALLEY OF THE DOLLS
1967, 20th Century Fox, 123 min, USA, Dir: Mark Robson

“You know it's bad to take liquor with those pills,” warns small-town girl turned supermodel Anne (Barbara Parkins) to Broadway diva/train wreck Neely (Patty Duke). Neely's answer: “They work faster.” Based on Jacqueline Susann's runaway best-seller - which practically created a cottage industry in glossy, sex-drenched soap operas on page and screen - director Mark Robson’s bitchy, booze-angst-sex-drugs-fueled cult classic cautions against the perils of show business. The tragically beautiful Sharon Tate was nominated for a Golden Globe for Most Promising Newcomer in her role as B-movie queen Jennifer.


35 mm!

WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH HELEN?

Middle-aged friends Adelle (Debbie Reynolds) and Helen (Shelley Winters) move to Hollywood to escape their past and open a dance studio for Shirley Temple wannabes - but threatening phone calls and Helen’s deteriorating mental state complicate matters. With Dennis Weaver and Agnes Moorehead.
