THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT
THE QUINTESSENTIAL 50's ROCK FILM
The classic rock and roll film of the 50s and the Jayne Mansfield movie. Legendary moments include her hot strut down the street to Little Richards title song, leaving ice blocks melting and milk bottles bubbling over.
Around a simple comic plot - gangster hires alcoholic press agent to make a singing star out of his incredibly voluptuous but tone-deaf girlfriend director Frank Tashlin creates a feast for eyes and ears in the grandeur of CinemaScope and glorious De Luxe colour.
Among the classic musical highlights are Eddie Cochrans Twenty Flight Rock, Gene Vincents Be Bop A Lula, a very sultry Julie London singing Cry Me A River and an electric performance by Little Richard at his peak.
