Quotes

Henry Bellamy: You see Neely's has a very special young talent, it needs a place to grow, to become more confident, now I can give her that and we can all share in those results, but it's that talent that's so valuable it's precious, it needs firm professional guidance and if you're going to continue to handle you better learn your business young man, the amateurs have a tendency to bring everyone down to their level, and in this case, that's intolerable.

Valley of the Dolls (maybe)!
5 July 2002 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I have seen the movie as well as read the book and the movie does not do the book justice. There are a dozen parts taken out (the movie was for ever long) and it jump to a subject without giving a lead up to. I did enjoy the movie don't get me wrong but I wish it had done some justice.
