Valley of the Dolls & Beyond The Valley of the Dolls SEs in June

Fox Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Valley of the Dolls (Special Edition) and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (Special Edition) for 13th June 2006 priced at $26.98 SRP each. These two-disc special edition releases of the cult Russ Meyer titles offer the following features…

The Valley of the Dolls (Special Edition) - Lured by their dreams of fame and fortune, three ambitious young women enter the world of show business and discover how easy it is to sink into a celebrity nightmare of ego, alcohol and 'pills' - the beloved "dolls." A prim New Englander (Barbara Parkins) unexpectedly skyrockets from her job as secretary in a talent agency to a glamorous TV model. A determined singer (Patty Duke) finds that Hollywood success can also spell self-destruction. And a beautiful sex symbol (Sharon Tate) is torn between the money commands and the shame of feeling exploited. Based on Jacqueline Susann's phenomenal best-seller about the underside of Hollywood, this fascinating melodrama was once seen as a shocking behind-the-scenes look at how show business creates instant stars, destroys romances and changes personalities forever.
