The Vals [Valley Girls]

N.p. Entertainment Artists Inc., 1983. Draft script for the 1983 film "The Vals," here under the WGA registered title, "Valley Girls."

Sam, Trish, Beth, and Annie are Valley Girls bored with their daily routine, so they befriend some boys at a local orphanage run by Mr. Stanton (John Carradine). Annie (Calabrese) is a snow-loving sexpot, whose father (Connors) loves snow of a more snortable caliber. Trish (Stratheros) gets involved with a drug dealer, Beth (Laurita) is the group goofball, and Sam (Carroll) leads the pack but is caught in a clash of cultures.

Director Polakof's other credits include "Balboa" (1983), "Swim Team" (1979), and the cult hit "Satan's Mistress" (1982). Released the same year as Martha Coolidge's "Valley Girl" (1983), perhaps the most recognized Valley-themed film next to this, and "Clueless" (1995), all paying tribute to Frank and Moon Unit Zappa's song "Valley Girl" (1982).
