Valley of the Dolls, Part 3

OK, so it has been almost seven (!) months since the last installment of Valley of the Dolls, but hey, it has taken Steven Spielberg almost twenty years for the next Indiana Jones flick. Of course, that is only a movie. Meanwhile, back to Tom Tierney's Glamorous Movie Stars paper doll books:
  • Glamorous Movie Stars of the Eighties Paper Dolls- Per the cover, this volume includes a cat (Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns -- never mind that it came in 1992), a fish (Daryl Hannah in Splash) and Cher. Also included are such glamour pusses as Frances Farmer (Jessica Lange in Frances) and Janis Joplin -- oops, Mary Rose Foster (Bette Midler in The Rose -- never mind that it came out in 1979).
  • Glamorous Movie Stars of the Nineties Paper Dolls- According to this cover, the 90's were all about the whores -- Julia Roberts in her tacky tramp ensemble from Pretty Woman and Nicole Kidman as the sultry Satine from Moulin Rouge! (never mind that it came out in 2001). Others include Gwyneth Paltrow (Emma and Shakespeare in Love) and Jodie Foster (Anna and the King) sporting period duds, but did we really need to be reminded of Julia's Tinker Bell from Hook?
