Summary
Three girls come to New York City and later, Hollywood, to chase their dreams of stardom: there's Anne, the innocent secretary type who becomes an assistant to a large theatrical agent; Neely, an aspiring chorus girl with pluck who dreams of being a singer; and the beautiful blonde Jennifer, who longs to be a real actress, but is destined to be regarded as a sex object. Life has a lot to give them, but there are prices for fame and fortune-- addictions to pills, booze, drowned careers, crumbling fortunes, dizzying highs and incredible lows. The three girls go for broke, eaten alive by show business, sex, and drugs, in this trashy, campy exposé of the dark side of stardom
