The Valley of the Dolls along with Beyond the Valley of the Dolls? And its historical bitchfest predecessor, All About Eve? I had to get this and boy am I glad I did. I hadn't seen either of those two films in decades and I laughed my ass off at both. Both are also visually fantastic- especially the Mod Fashion sequences of "The Valley of The Dolls". Perfect timepiece. And there are so many quotable lines in both -- "They say I'm self-destructive --- SO WHAT?" and the classic "It's my scene and it freaks me out!" (from "Beyond".)

Roger Ebert's commentary on "Beyond" explains a lot about this bizarre movie- hard to believe that he wrote such a weird film as he seems rather staid. He talks about how he and Russ Meyer wrote it on the fly, satirizing the first film's over-the-top melodrama. It makes sense too, since this non-sequel's twists and turns are almost random and pointless. It also explains the peculiar script style; how all the characters openly declare their motivations and act in a somewhat old-fashioned acting style for the 60s.

And the all-female band is actually, in its hokey Hollywood way, pretty great. There are a few really catchy songs and you can tell they had some kind of Grace Slick-type of vocalist as a model for their sound. And of course, the musical numbers are played against the most awesome montages ever. When Ebert explains Meyer's montage style, you really notice how perfect the overly-stylized tactic works. Probably not workable in any other kind of genre, also, so this film's a rare treat.

I have no idea what the Ingrid Bergman movie is doing in this set; other than maybe this was intended to be marketed as a collection of 'women's films' or proto-chick-flicks.

Fox Classics has released many titles from their back-catalogue in four-movie "quad" box collections. It's a cheaper option than buying each title individually, and does help save valuable shelf space as well.

ALL ABOUT EVE:
The bitchiest, back-bitingest backstage drama of them all! Bette Davis and Anne Baxter are in peak form in Joseph L. Mankiewicz's most delicious of movies. Stage legend Margo Channing (Davis) is the idol of Eve (Baxter), a devoted fan who soon worms her way into Margo's life - but aims to eclipse her as the greatest star on Broadway.

BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS:
Film critic Roger Ebert penned the script for this tawdry Russ Meyer sex romp, which pertains to be a sequel to the Jacqueline Susann story, but only really shares it's title. The movie "unzips" the crazed, debauched lifestyles of the California music set, with John La Zar in a fruity performance as 'Z-Man'.

THE INN OF THE SIXTH HAPPINESS:
Following up her acclaimed turn as "Anastasia", Ingrid Bergman again charms as real-life missionary Gladys Aylward ("The Little Woman"). The movie somewhat embellishes Aylward's own life story, creating a fictional romance with a Eurasian army captain (Curt Jurgens); but it's a fascinating story.

VALLEY OF THE DOLLS:
Jacqueline Susann's bestselling pulp fiction masterpiece lost a lot of it's bite in the eventual movie version, but the performances are super. Patty Duke is Neely O'Hara, the "born in a trunk" showbiz whiz who soon dissolves into pills and booze, Barbara Parkins plays Anne Welles, the good girl from Lawrenceville who gets mixed up with the wrong kind of guy; and Sharon Tate is "untalented" Jennifer North, in perhaps the most eerie performance of her short career.

Odd mating of movies, but worth the cost of admission for "Inn of the Sixth Happiness" alone. Then there's Bet Davis' line "Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy evening." And The Dolls flicks ? Pure camp, starring Dolly Parton-like Barbie dolls. What's not to like ? But who ever thought of this combination of films ?

I read with some bemusement the reviewer here who thought ONE of these 4 films was "one of the worst movies I ever saw" and was "EXTREMELY disappointed" and used all caps to prove it! Can you guess the one she was referring too? I can, because that's the ONLY reason I bought this collection! That, my friends, is what happens when the average white-bread stay-at-home viewer is confronted with Russ Meyer for the first time in the camouflage of a seemingly conventional 4 film collection! (Word to the wise, stay away from anything with the name Todd Solondz in the credits, he of fame also garnered through a film with Doll in the title as well)

All About Eve is an old-school classic, true. Inn of Sixth Happiness--well, never heard of that one. Valley of the Dolls is a true soap-operatic potboiler that was outdated when it came out! In its own unintentional campy way it IS a classic of its kind--it is after all based on a Jacqueline Susann novel--not exactly JD Salinger material here.

But Beyond The Valley of the Dolls was built from the ground up as a satire of the then-current hippie/hipster So. California lifestyle with the Valley of the Dolls-women seeking fame and fortune-formula as a foundation, and it accomplishes this brilliantly. Even today this movie is still relevant--as witnessed in the recent popular Austin Powers films, for which this provided much of the blueprint and is even quoted verbatim: "This is my happening and it freaks me out!". Usually there is a span of years before a satirical eye can be effectively turned on a specific era like this--i.e. Dazed and Confused was not made in 1976, but some 20 years later. But BVD was covering it as is was happening--a rarity to say the least.
