Free Film at DPL: Valley of the Dolls (1967)

May 26, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Starring Patty Duke, Susan Hayward, Sharon Tate, and Barbara Parkins. Directed by Mark Robson.
In the opening scene of Valley of the Dolls, Susan Hayward barks, “The only hit that comes out of a Helen Lawson show is Helen Lawson. And that’s me, remember, baby?”  From that moment forward the audience is treated to a camp classic of the first water. “Show business corrupts nice girls — that’s Valley’s sad, funny truth. Stay away from Hollywood (or Broadway), girls, if you want to keep your virtue and your sanity.  Anne Welles (Barbara Parkins) leaves the snowbound protection of chaste New England for Sodom on the Hudson — New York City — where she is bound to find her doom.” – flickfilosopher.com.  123 minutes. Rated PG-13.

This film will be shown on the big screen in the B2 Conference Room at the Central Library and it’s FREE!
