No use reviewing the film because everyone has already done that. Needless to say it's great and extremely well written. This is a far more polished piece of work than Meyer's other well-known films (i.e. not as "trashy").
Well, earlier today (September 27th, 2004) on "Ebert & Roper At The Movies", Roger Ebert spoke about the death of his friend Russ Meyer...
Ebert revealed that he has recorded a commentary for the film and it seems Criterion will be releasing it on DVD sometime next year (2005).
Skip the VHS and wait for the pot-o-gold with a commentary by the actual writer! This truly will be my happening and it freaks me out, man!

By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER on Dec 2 2007
Format: DVD
This is my first film by this director. I'm hesitant to guess what ignited my interest in the films of renowned sleaze master and independent film guru Russ Meyer. The film opens with a title card explaining that it is not, in any way, related to the work of Jacqueline Susann, the literary trashmeistress who wrote the novel upon which the 1967 Mark Robson film "Valley of the Dolls" was based.

Meet 'The Kelly Affair' - three rock rockin' song birds led by Kelly on vocals, (Dolly Reed) with Casey on rhythm guitar, (Cynthia Myers) and Pet (Marcia McBroom) on drums. Reduced to playing Senior Proms, the three girls and their Manager/Kelly's lover, Harris, (David Gurlan) decide to leave for Hollywood in search of fame. Once in town, Kelly contacts her estranged Aunt Suzan (Phyllis Davis) who works as fashion magazine editor for a place to crash with she and her band-mates. Then, after diner with Kelly, Suzan decides to give her a portion of the inheritance that Suzan received from their family. Not bad for a first day in Tinsletown. Soon, Kelly and crew are swinging at the pad of legendary Hollywood record producer Ronnie "Z-Man" Barzel (played by John LaZar - in one of the best roles in the film). Ronnie hears Kelly's music and turns them into an overnight sensation, recording their songs and renaming them "The Carrie Nations." Their albums skyrocket to the top of the charts, but not without the viscous cost of fame. Loves are lost and hearts are broken. The pure-at-heart turns to hedonistic compulsions, while money and drugs consume their very beings. Throw in some kinky sex, nice' rock numbers, garish melodrama, rapid-fire dialog, Meyer's signature camera and editing style and you've got one of the most daring movies ever produced by Hollywood.

"Beyond The Valley of the Dolls" is a movie that was made over 30 years ago but is still enjoyable to watch today. I truly admire this film, Roger Eberts writing and the direction of Russ Meyer just make this film unique and amazing. At some points the film can be so dramatic and at other times so light hearted. The film also set some trends, like the African American woman at Z Mans party with the gold rhinestone eye shadow decoration, everyone thought Alicia Keys was doing something new when she wore rhinestones on her eyelids to the Grammy's and then all these rappers talking about Bentley's the one woman in the movie was talking about how a Rolls is better than a Bently.
This movie is awesome for so many reasons. For one its 2004 and we will never see a movie on the big screen that takes so many risks. How many movies are there where the White and African American characters have true friendships and both characters have developed story lines? It was the 60's and Ebert and Meyers weren't afraid to bring taboos like sexual orientation, well let me not be a spoiler.
The women were so beautiful, Casey, Pet and Kelly. They had bodacious bodies and big hair and perfect make-up. They lived life so carefree. The underlying storyline about the money was never really resolved but so much was going on in that flick.
It's a really great movie and it's funny because at the end, the very end they try to be moral and tie it all together and make a social statement. This is a wild and crazy trip of a movie and I catch something new everytime I watch it. As a writer and a one time aspiring film maker movies like this one make me want to go out and take risks.

As mentioned practically every genre in film is expressed in this movie. Drama, comedy, love story, mystery, slasher-horror, psychological mind bender, and soft porn (straight, gay, bi, lesbian). In other words the greatest and cheesiest soap opera ever made. The plot? Well if its important it deals with a girl band, who become The Carrie Nations, moving to L.A. to try to �make it� following them as they get stepped on and abused along the way. The usual story of the manipulation of people, especially women, in Hollywood or the World in general by those who have already �made it� or think they have materially but not spiritually. The narrator sums it up at the end. �There can be no beginning or ending that does not in some way touch another. For our actions affect the lives and destinies of the many.� This is just one example of the self-righteous cheesy, but truthful, moralizing in the film. There are outrageous parties and bizarre incidents which convey ideologies of the time, psychedelic imagery, chromatic sets, early mtv style editing, soap operatic clichés, drug-use, a sword wielding psudeo-Shakesperian spouting crazy, a bartending Nazi, a Liston/Tyson type boxer and a bloodbath. It�s not the plot but how it unfolds that makes this a true original and unique film.
I agree with others below. This is a postmodern classic. A panoptic view of the world formation of new subjectivity in reality that occurred in the �60�s, of hybrid selves blurring mores and forming beyond the binary dualisms of a hegemonic and phallocratic culture. However, like the real Carrie Nation the film has a message of temperance and how the enjoyments in finding oneself through over indulgence in anything can lead to evil.
