An engaging look at the dark side of the fashion industry
18 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought Paper Dolls was a pretty entertaining soap opera as far as this genre goes. There were plenty of conflicts and drama to hold one's attention during its brief run. Some big names were featured here such as Lloyd Bridges, Dack Rambo, Brenda Vaccaro, etc. However, some of the characters were fairly clichéd such as Brenda Vaccaro's role as the greedy hard-driving mother. On the other hand, Morgan Fairchild was perfect in her role as head of a model agency and I would put her performance up there with with other notable femmes fatales.

I think the reason Paper Dolls did not last longer than a year was twofold: fashion industry tends not to draw male viewers, and the American public was starting to tire of prime time soaps after Dallas and Dynasty. Even with its shortcomings, it still made for an entertaining hour.
