An unsuccessful over-the-top actress becomes a successful over-the-top authoress in this biography of Jacqueline Susann, the famed writer of "Valley of the Dolls" and other trashy novels. Facing a failing career, Susann meets a successful promoter who becomes her husband. After several failures to place her in commercials and a TV quiz show, he hits upon the idea for her to become a writer. In the pre-1960s, her books were looked upon as trash and non-printable. But then the sexual revolution hit and an audience was born for her books. The story shows the hidden behind the scenes story of Susann's life, including her autistic son and her continuing bout with cancer that she hid up to her death. Written by

When Jackie appears on "The Tonight Show" in 1966, the set and Johnny Carson's appearance are not from one of his mid-1960s broadcasts from New York, but instead from some years later, when the show moved to Los Angeles in the early 1970s. See more »
A most delightful comedy with lots of great actors.
How did I ever miss this one when it was at the theater? Found it in the Video rental and picked it because of the dozen well know actors from John Creasy to Nathan Lane, Amanda, Peets, Stockard Channing, Bev Midler, "Niles" from Fraiser, John LaRoquette...
Some were minor parts, but all did an excellent job. We laughed and laughed. If you can listen to the word F*CK used in many funny lines, you will too!
