Anne Welles, a bright, brash young New England college grad leaves her Peyton Place-ish small town and heads for Broadway, where she hopes to find an exciting job and sophisticated men. During her misadventures in Manhattan and, later, Hollywood, she shares experiences with two other young hopefuls: Jennifer North, a statuesque, Monroe-ish actress who wants to be accepted as a human being, but is regarded as a sex object by all the men she meets, and Neely O'Hara, a talented young actress who's accused of using devious means by a great older star (Helen Lawson) to reach the top, pulling an "All About Eve"-type deception in order to steal a good role away from her. Written by
As explained in the novel, Neely O'Hara is not the character's birth name but a stage name. Her birth name is Agnes Ethel O'Neil, a name that she disliked. Her stage name comes from a corruption of her last name to form Neely, while O'Hara comes from the film Gone With the Wind (1939), of which she was a big fan of. See more »
Right after Lyon Burke (Paul Burke) advises Neely O'Hara (Patty Duke) to check into a sanitarium, he leaves, and Neely goes to a phone, dials it, and then picks up the receiver to speak to someone already on the line. See more »
I first saw this movie when it was released. I never appreciated it until I was older. Totally camp...totally PERFECT. Fashion, hair, acting, music. The whole package. Definitely on my list of top five favorite movies of all time! I know it's not good....but, damn, it's GREAT!!!! Patty Duke is trying SO hard to make this movie real,which just makes it worse...or better, depending on your view! I can't wait till it comes out on DVD. There are so many memorable moments from this film. Rent it, buy it... watch it on cable. But SEE IT! Valley of the Dolls ROCKS! "Sparkle Neeley, SPARKLE!" Let this generation have "Showgirls"-- WE have Valley of the Dolls!
