For Jacqueline Susann, excess was the norm. She lived a life most people only dreamt about. She basked in the spotlight, and reveled in the glitz and glamour that made her a pop icon in the 60’s and 70’s. On the surface, Susann had it all, but her life was far from perfect. Beneath the facade she was tormented by a secret she desperately fought to keep hidden from the world.
Based on Barbara Seaman’s novel Lovely Me: The Life of Jacqueline Susann, Michele Lee stars as Jacqueline Susann, a woman who lived the party life of New York in the ’60s, and then wrote about it. This movie explores the story of the tough, self-absorbed woman who surmounted impossible odds to become at 47, the reigning superstar of pulp fiction. Her Valley of the Dolls in 1966 went on to become a bestseller, and is still included as one of the Top 10 best-selling books of all time.
“Scandalous Me: The Jacqueline Susann Story” is based on Barbara Seaman’s national bestseller, “Lovely Me: The Life of Jacqueline Susann Story.”
Also stars Peter Riegert, James Farentino and Barbara Parkins.
