BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS
1970, 20th Century Fox, 109 min, USA, Dir: Russ Meyer

Dolly Reed, Marcia McBroom and the incredibly foxy Cynthia Meyers journey from Hicksville to Hollywood hoping to make it big with their all-girl rock trio, The Carrie Nations. They fall prey to the evils of the music industry as well as to their own inflated ambitions. A pop culture sex fest (co-written by film critic Roger Ebert). With additional tunes from The Strawberry Alarm Clock.


FUN WITH DICK AND JANE
1977, Sony Repertory, 95 min, Dir: Ted Kotcheff

A lifestyle beyond one’s means and the schemes to maintain it are the basis of this comedy favorite, which was remade in 2005. Dick and Jane Harper (George Segal and Jane Fonda) could lose their beautiful house when Dick is laid off – but it’s nothing a little armed robbery can’t fix. “The Tonight Show” sidekick Ed McMahon costars (and future “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno has an uncredited part). Co-produced by Aero Theatre benefactor Max Palevsky!
