The nation's most startling and hotly discussed best-seller now on the screen with every shock and sensation intact.
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.
Editor's Note
An inarguable high watermark of modish Hollywood camp, rent from the deliciously pulpy eponymous novel by Jacqueline Susann. Three ambitious young women from different walks of life suffer through the show business meat grinder: an aspiring Broadway diva battles with addiction, a reluctant bombshell makes "art" movies to eke out a living for her ailing husband, and a sensible small-town girl turns modeling sensation. Sudsy, irresistible, and loaded with scenery-chewing, particularly in the memorable scene where a hysterical Duke cries to her pills, "My dolls! My beautiful dolls!" Academy Award Nominations: Best (Adapted) Score.

Plot Summary
Film adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's melodramatic, bestselling potboiler. The story tracks the lives of three women -- naive New Englander Anne Welles, aspiring singer Neely O'Hara, and buxom beauty Jennifer North -- as they attempt to achieve fame and fortune in Hollywood. But as each starlet either rises to the top or falls to the bottom, she discovers that Hollywood is full of pitfalls and heartbreak. Instead of the happiness they seek, the trio finds only alcoholism, wild sexcapades, tantrums, porno roles, suicide, marital woes, wigs in the toilet, and a dependence on "dolls" -- slang for pills. Which of these ingenues will survive her "trip" through Hollywood?

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
What we have here is a dirty soap opera. It is dirty because it intends to be, but it is a soap opera only by default. It tries to raise itself to the level of sophisticated pornography, but fails. - Roger Ebert
