A Rock 'n' Roll Extravaganza Of Ample Proportions!
An in-depth analysis of Russ Meyer's Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls (1970), scripted by Roger Ebert, and still one of the most bizarre and outrageous films ever to emerge from mainstream Hollywood. Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls meshes sex, drugs, rock music, violence and murder in one of the most stunning cinematic burlesques ever created, complete with a transsexual killer, a Nazi butler, and references to the Manson murders.
With over 40 photographs, including 12 pages in full colour, an extensive introduction, quotes and production details. Known as "King of the Nudies”, Russ Meyer was without doubt the most talented director ever to emerge from the world of "sexploitation” cinema. His 1966 film Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is now regarded as a cult classic, and is currently being remade under the auspices of Quentin Tarantino.
