“It’s fabulous, teddy bear—a psychedelic wow that serves up the free love, plunging necklines, androgynous boys, and lusty lezzies of the era with a narcotized abandon.”
—The Village Voice
“A delirious comedy melodrama, soused in self- parody but spiked with dope, sex and thrills.”
No, it’s not a sequel to Jacqueline Susann’s VALLEY OF THE DOLLS — there has been nothing like it! A girl group heads to Hollywood to make it big only to fall into a pit of drugs, murder, and (gasp!) lesbianism in this legendary X-rated major-studio film by critic-turned-writer Roger Ebert and “King of the Nudies” Russ Meyer. Paired with the sequel to Penelope Spheeris’s I DON’T KNOW (screened in January), HATS OFF TO HOLLYWOOD. Queer Cinema: Lost & Found programmer Elizabeth Purchell will join us for a discussion after the screening on Saturday, February 11.
