On this day in 1967, 20TH CENTURY FOX released VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. Directed by MARK ROBSON and based on the bestselling potboiler by JACQUELINE SUSANN this is the granddaddy of all ‘bad movies we love.’ This is the bad movie SHOWGIRLS sat at the foot of. The story of three young women clawing their way to the top of the show-biz ladder was riddled with bad dialog and performances to match. The all-star cast included BARBARA PARKINS, PATTY DUKE, SHARON TATE, SUSAN HAYWARD (replacing JUDY GARLAND) and LEE GRANT. This would be one of the 10 movies we would choose to be stranded on a desert island with.
