Film Screening and Book Signing with co-author of Patty Duke's Memoir
VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, the 1967 camp classic returns to the Music Box for the first time since 2010 when Oscar winner Patty Duke appeared in-person. Before her death in 2016, the beloved, multiple award-winning actress discussed the film and other highlights of her unparalleled career with Bill Jankowski, and the two co-authored the recently released memoir, IN THE PRESENCE OF GREATNESS - MY SIXTY YEAR JOURNEY AS AN ACTRESS.
After the film, Jankowski will discuss his warm friendship with the actress, share behind-the-scenes details from Duke's career and sign copies of the book. Richard Knight Jr., founder and president of the Queer Film Society (a partial beneficiary of the event), hosts the evening. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. Jankowski will also be signing copies starting at 6pm until the screening starts.
