Favorite movies?

Now I'm into old film noir (of any country, especially from the 1940's and 50's).

Oh!...and into old movies filmed in New York (about the working class)-for ex. Marty (1955); A Catered Affair (with Bette Davis and Borgnine)(1959); On The Waterfront (with Brando)...all black and white...LOL

They all remind me of the New York I used to be sent when I was a small kid (back in 1962-69).

There's a recent one which captures the "go-go/psychedelic age of 1967-69)-Factory Girl (about the relationship between Andy Warhol and socialite Edie Sedgwick).

The clothes, the music, the tragedy of those years...(great movie).

Oh, man..Nube...

I just discovered Cagney and am always imitating him...LOL

The guy treats his women like s_it, in all his movies; as well as Gable (I bet those were the mores of the 1930's to the 1960's).

That's why I love characters such as Marylin Monroe (who used to make fun of "tough machos" or Bette Davis, who treated them like "s_it")....LOL

Because there were stories that many of those people who participated in that movie died strangely. Also there are rumors that Linda Blair was having some psych problems not too long after the movie. They are rumors though I can't say its a fact. Back on the movie it really scared for one my dad made me watch it at the tender age of 7 lol, I saw it as an adult and I was creeped out that movie traumatized me haha.

Was it?

I've never dared to watch it because I might be dissapointed, especially since I love Valley Of The Dolls so much, that I've turned it into one of my own "Rocky Horror Show" way of watching it.

I interact with all the characters in the movie especially with Patty Duke's Nelly O'Hara...; Barbara Perkin's and Sharon Tate's.

What's it about?

Talking about Hollywood authors...LOL-Jackeline Susan, Jackie Collins...LOL

"Stigmata"creeps me out because she got possessed from a rosary that her mother sent her. The idea that you can buy something and it can carry bad spirits its frightening. Ayy señor

My parents were (and my Dad still is) movie fanatics (but the die hard kind)...

Blame them!

LOL

When they were both in middle and HS, their schools were across movie theaters, so they would cut class to watch the hits (and even turned the expectation of a preview into a "happening").

When my only sister was living in LA, she asked me if I wanted to go to a movie premier, the classic movie premier. And I was not disappointed...with people screaming on the sides, the endless limo line, reflectors in the sky, flash cameras going off, you name it.

Writing this still gives me goose bumps...LOL

My sister was in the entertainment business (US and Latino, alike) and now teaches it in college (in Miami).

You're right.

I forgot that spooky angle.

Thanks for reminding me.

Promise to see it again, not before re reading everything that happened before, during and after the shooting.

God, the stuff that our parents put their children thru, the same happened to me with Joan Crawford's Straight Jacket (in which she decapitates her husband when she caught him with his lover, in her bed and in front of her only daughter-that's the first scence)...LOL

The daughter was so traumatized, that she turned into a serial killer as a grown up (played by Dianne Baker)...

I remember that when you arrived at the theater-the Paramount in Santurce, the marquee was decorated with axes dripping blood...LOL.

And at the end of the movie-the Columbia statue's head was lying at her feet...LOL

I was around 7 also (Mom wanted to see it)...LOL

My sister and I slept with them for about a week.

Only movies with sexual contents and scenes were rated in those days.

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is a 1970 American schlock melodrama film starring Dolly Read, Cynthia Myers, Marcia McBroom, John LaZar, Michael Blodgett and David Gurian. The cult classic was directed by Russ Meyer and co-written by Meyer and Roger Ebert.

Three young women—Kelly MacNamara (Dolly Read), Casey Anderson (Cynthia Myers), and Petronella "Pet" Danforth (Marcia McBroom)—perform in a rock band, The Kelly Affair, managed by Harris Allsworth (David Gurian), Kelly's boyfriend. The four travel to Los Angeles to find Kelly's estranged aunt, Susan Lake (Phyllis Davis), heiress to a family fortune.

Susan welcomes Kelly and her friends, even promising a third of her inheritance to her niece, but Susan's sleazy financial advisor Porter Hall (Duncan McLeod) discredits them as "hippies" in an attempt to embezzle her fortune himself. Undeterred, Susan introduces The Kelly Affair to a flamboyant, well-connected rock producer, Ronnie "Z-Man" Barzell (John LaZar), who coaxes them into an impromptu performance at one of his outrageous parties (after a set by real-life band Strawberry Alarm Clock). The band is so well-received that Z-Man becomes their Svengali-style manager, changing their name to The Carrie Nations and starting a long-simmering feud with Harris.

Kelly drifts away from Harris and takes up with Lance Rocke (Michael Blodgett), a high-priced gigolo who pursued her with designs on her inheritance. Harris fends off the aggressive attentions of porn star Ashley St. Ives (Edy Williams), but after losing Kelly weakly allows Ashley to seduce him. Ashley soon tires of his uptight nature and inability to perform sexually due to increasing drug and alcohol intake. Harris descends further into heavy drug and alcohol use, leading to a drug-addled one-night stand with Casey which results in pregnancy. Casey, distraught at getting pregnant and wary of men's foibles, has a lesbian affair with clothes designer Roxanne (Erica Gavin), who urges her to have an abortion.

Casey and Roxanne have a steamy, intimate romance. But this idyllic existence ends when Z-Man invites Casey, Roxanne, and Lance to a psychedelic-fueled party at his house. After revealing he has female breasts and trying to seduce Lance, who spurns him, Z-Man goes on a murderous rampage: he beheads Lance with a sword (while the Twentieth-Century Fox fanfare is heard on the soundtrack), stabs his servant Otto (Henry Rowland) to death, and shoots Casey and Roxanne, killing them

Responding to a desperate phone call Casey made shortly before her death, Kelly, Harris, Pet, and Emerson arrive at Z-Man's house and try to subdue him. Petronella is wounded in the melee, which ends in Z-Man's death. After a preachy, satirical voice-over monologue during scenes of Kelly and Harris (in crutches) hiking on a log over a creek—which Roger Ebert credits to Russ Meyer's "sick sense of humor"[this quote needs a citation]—the film ends with the wedding of three couples, Kelly and Harris, Pet and Emerson, and Susan and Baxter Wolfe, with Porter Hall observing from outside the court house window.
