This bio is as campy as anything Jacqueline Susann ever wrote.
22 April 2000 | by jkinozSee all my reviews

This bio is as campy and trashy as anything jacqueline Susann ever wrote. Michele Lee does an excellent job in her impersonation of Susann. Unlike Bette Midler's recent performance as Jackie in the movie "Isn't She Great", Lee is believable and makes the audience care. As an added treat, Barbara Parkins show up as Susann's book editor and gets to mutter the line, "Where is Barbara Parkins?" as she watches a scene from "Valley of the Dolls" be filmed. Whether you are a Jacqueline Susann fan or not, this one is worth checking out.

Susann would have loved it!
