One sequence in the film involves Susann going on a book tour by car with her husband Irving Mansfield (Nathan Lane) and publishing representative Debbie (Amanda Peet) to promote her first novel Valley of the Dolls. The first stop is Gladrey's Book Nook in Stroudsburg, PA. In the car, Debbie quizzes Jackie on the owners (it's the owner's wife's birthday) to be as personable as she can and, hence, sell more of her books:
Okay. Stroudsburg. GO!
Gladrey's Book Nook.
And when I decided to publish, the very first thing I told my publisher...
(interrupts) Henry Marcus.
...was Gladrey's Book Nook, STROUDSBURG, PA!
