Movie Scene Sunday: Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

When I saw that Movieoftheday was going to cover one of my favorite cult classics, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, I was ecstatic. Written by Roger Ebert (yes, that Ebert), the movie is full of sex, drugs, rock & rock, and an epic transgender reveal. This movie is pretty intense, over the top and deserves to be watched once just so you can say at the end, "What the eff did I just watch?"

You may recognize some moments from this scene taking place at an industry party. Obviously Austin Powers learned a few things from how Ronnie "Z-Man" Barcell and the The Carrie Nations party. "This is my happening and it freaks me out!"

That's one movie that has been on my "must watch" list for a while. I love Ebert's work, and just from that clip, it seems like he gets all of the excesses of bad screenplays pretty god damn well.

I've caught it on IFC a few times and if you think that's good, wait til you see the scene I *ALMOST* posted from the end. It's definitely an "OMG" moment.
