Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

Celebrating Russ Meyer’s 100th Birthday!

In 1970, Twentieth Century-Fox, impressed by the visual zing “King of the Nudies” Russ Meyer had been bringing to bargain-basement exploitation fare, handed the director a studio budget and the title to one of its biggest hits, Valley of the Dolls. With a satirical screenplay by Roger Ebert, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls follows three young female rockers (Dolly Read, Cynthia Myers, Marcia McBroom) going Hollywood, in hell-bent sixties style, under the spell of a flamboyant producer—whose decadent bashes showcase Meyer’s trademark libidinal exuberance. Transgressive and outrageous, this big-studio version of a debaucherous midnight movie is an addictively entertaining romp from one of cinema’s great outsider artists.

1970, 109 minutes, Rated NC-17, Directed Russ Meyer, Written by Roger Ebert

  • “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls isn't just a cult movie, it's the greatest cult movie ever made.”

    – Sean Mulvihill, FANBOYNATION.COM
  • “This trashy, gaudy, sound-stage vulgarity about low life among the high life is as funny as a burning orphanage.”

    – Variety
  • “One of the best movies ever made”

    – John Waters
  • “One of the strangest and wildest cult flicks to be ever financed by a major studio”
