Martin Milner vs. Valley of the Dolls


Valley of the Dolls is a classic piece of camp cinema.
It apparently almost cost Patty Duke her career.
Whatever! We're interested more in Officer Pete Malloy!


He is out of the picture by the end of the first hour, but let's pretend this is the whole film.







Don't cry, Patty! You get to be on a Cystic Fibrosis telethon!




Waiters in red jackets?
Us Dragnet fans are right at home!






Patty's apartment makes us think of some of the set design around Dragnet and Adam-12.





How marriages are made - play a record and kiss Martin Milner.






NO DON'T TAKE DRUGS, PATTY


NO IT'S OK MARTIN
WE'RE IGNORING YOU AND TREATING YOU LIKE FURNITURE


WELL DAMN


After Patty gets her Grammy award, we're in California with glamorous Sharon Tate!







"Woman, if you're going to be that way, I'm taking my portable typewriter and going home!"
