Happy Happy New Year

Black tie and bikini wearing dancers inside giant drink glasses. I'll have another, thank you.

Happy New Year! May all your parties include bikini clad women in giant drink glasses.

Bikini wearing go-go girls dance in a giant drink glass in this still from “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls”, a 1970 release written by Roger Ebert and directed by Russ Meyer. Definitely a roman a clef, the screenplay came together in six weeks. Writing in 1980 on the tenth anniversary of the film’s release, Ebert explained that while there was a written script, “The movie’s story was made up as we went along, which makes subsequent analysis a little tricky.”
