VALLEY OF THE DOLLS has the last laugh!
30 March 2002 | by (Central Florida) – See all my reviews

This American Movie Classics special is a fascinating look back at a cult classic, 30 years after it's release. Critics were unmerciful when "Valley of the Dolls" was originally released in 1967. VOD, however, has had the last laugh. It has stood the test of time and is remembered today while many of the critic's darlings of 1967 have long been forgotten. This special attempts to tell why.

The segments on Sharon Tate and Judy Garland are sad reminders of what might have been. The real treats here are the up to date interviews with the movies two stars, Patty Duke and Barbara Parkins.

Ms. Duke appears to be finally enjoying her legacy with "Valley of the Dolls." She has proven herself to be an accomplished actress many times over as her Oscar and multiple Emmy Award wins will attest. However, when all is said and done, she will always be linked to and remembered as Neely O'Hara.

It is doubly exciting to see Ms. Parkins who has been absent from the movies and TV for too long. She is as beautiful today as she was in 1967. She still has that magical voice that melts your heart.

I hope they include this 30 minute special on the eventual DVD release of "Valley
