Valley of the Dolls

Jacqueline Susann (novel)
Mark Robson (director)
Patty Duke, Sharon Tate (starring)

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1967. Collection of five vintage reference photographs, all quite striking, of Patty Duke in various states of celebrity, intoxication, or depravity in the 1967 film. Based on Jacqueline Susann's 1966 best selling novel. Shown in one of the photographs is author Susann, who appears in a cameo as a reporter who interviews Duke.

A big budget film that became a cult classic. The story, though presented in 1967, was based on Susann's experience with the 1940s Broadway theater and Hollywood scene, with an emphasis on the abuse of the business, sex and pills.

8 x 10 inches. A few ink annotations on the verso of each photograph, else easily Near Fine.
