Beyond the Valley of the Dolls DVD

The ultimate DVD release came out on June 13th 2006. And its a killer edition. The print is the best i've seen & it's a joy to experience. Get a room full of friends & watch, cause it's a hoot. The opinions on the film are divided, but many like myself reckon it's easily Russ Meyer's most ambitious film & if anything, it cannot be accused of being boring. It may be a chaotically arranged shambles at time, but underneath it all, it has layers upon layers & subtext within its technicolour pandemonium.
