If this topic has already been discussed, forgive me. Just point me toward its previous incarnation and I'll delete this one. If not...then in light of the recent showings of so many Lana Turner schmaltzy movies, got to thinking about my all time favorite 'so bad it's good' films. I KNOW there are others in my HokeyHitList, but first and foremost in my mind is: "VALLEY OF THE DOLLS" Patty Duke is as pricelessly over the top as Barbara Parkins is ba-a-a-d. While my heart bled for the great Lee Grant having to be a part of all that hokem, I roared w/the thunderous approval of all the transvestite performer/impersonators out there for the great, 'wigged' Susan Hayward. A general, gigantic hoot all around, friends & I used to gather for annual "VOTD" parties and sync dialog & sing alongs w/Neely. Good times! Zea
