    Russ Meyer was the King of sexploitation, so he was a shoo-in to direct the “not a” sequel to Hollywood’s scandalous Valley of The Dolls, directed by the much more mainstream Mark Robson. Of course, Meyer outdid the original in outrageousness and trashiness, with the help of young Robert Ebert who wrote the script.

    “In 1970, Twentieth Century-Fox, impressed by the visual zing “King of the Nudies” Russ Meyer had been bringing to bargain-basement exploitation fare, handed the director a studio budget and the title to one of its biggest hits, Valley of the Dolls…Transgressive and outrageous, this big-studio version of a debaucherous midnight movie is an addictively entertaining romp from one of cinema’s great outsider artists.”-Criterion Collection
