Valley of the Dolls (1967)

20th Century Fox

We didn’t say we were making a list of the best films of the 1960s — just the most enjoyable.

Sure, Lawrence of Arabia might be better and more important than Valley of the Dolls, but you’ll have much more fun watching this dishy, wildly over-the-top adaptation of the sensational Jaqueline Susann bestseller.

Barbara Perkins, Patty Duke and Sharon Tate star as young women struggling to make it in the entertainment industry, who are driven to pill-popping by the demands and bad men all around. It received critical pans, but it’s a fabulous time capsule of the supposedly swingin’ — but actually often dark — 1960s.
