The careers of three young women in Hollywood, as they are exploited and objectified by those they meet and succumb to the ills of booze and drugs.

The Review

Unspeakably awful filming of Jacqueline Susann's trashy novel, its most reprehensible aspect being the high-gloss treatment accorded its supposedly satiric subject matter. A pretty pass for a director who cut his teeth on Val Lewton horror pics.
