I am so impressive this informative story. I wondered for a moment why the events hadn't been mentioned, however briefly, in Valley of the Dolls. This is so interesting and informative blog. The Dream Factory". It segues right into a lavish production number, Rodgers and Hart's "Hollywood Party". Thanks share this good think at this site.

When I first saw Girl 27, I wondered for a moment why the events hadn't been mentioned, however briefly, in Valley of the Dolls. Then I realized that the story had been so carefully buried that not even Jacqueline Susann knew about it.

A clip from Mayer's speech to the salesmen is shown in Dick Cavett's almost-forgotten documentary, "Hollywood: The Dream Factory". It segues right into a lavish production number, Rodgers and Hart's "Hollywood Party". I can't remember if that song was included in "Girl 27" or not, but it should have been. It was a perfect illustration of the attitude and expectations.

"Dream Factory" is included in the bonus material for the 2004 DVD release of "Meet Me In St. Louis".

May Patricia rest in peace now.

Wow. What a great story. Had jury duty today and caught the article in today's LA Times, and meant to chase down this article. Thanks Lisa. An amazing story.
