Russ Meyer's racy, colourful tale about an uninhibited all-girl rock group is not a sequel to its predecessor, "Valley of the Dolls", despite its title. Filled with some of the most bizarre characters and situations ever seen on film, it spans nearly every film genre - comedy, musical, horror, murder, sex and melodrama. When three female rock 'n' rollers travel to Hollywood to claim an inheritance, they meet up with a kinky music promoter who turns them on to a whole new scene. At first, all seems very exciting and the naive trio become submerged in his dangerous tinseltown underworld - before they discover his true motives.
A good mix of psychedelic music and action

This is a classic from the Director of glamour and horror Russ Meyer. There is a good range of trip out tunes and antics in this film. That features plenty of voluptuous women and bizarre alternative scene characters. Russ Meyer was well known for pushing the social and political views of the time and casting pornographic level models including gratuitous violence but not getting too heavy. The score is well suited to this film and is underpinned by a positive life affirming message mixed with an intelligent post World War Two subtext.
