Summary
  • "In 1956, Frank Tashlin brought the talent for zany visual gags and absurdist pop-culture satire that he'd honed as a master of animation to the task of capturing, in glorious DeLuxe Color, a brand-new craze: rock and roll. This blissfully bonkers jukebox musical tells the story of a mobster's bombshell girlfriend--the one and only Jayne Mansfield, in a showstopping first major film role--and the washed-up talent agent (Tom Ewell) who seeks to revive his career by turning her into a musical sensation. The only question is: Can she sing? A CinemaScope feast of eye-popping midcentury design, it bops along to a parade of performances by rock-and-roll trailblazers--including Little Richard, Fats Domino, Julie London, Eddie Cochran, the Platters, and Gene Vincent--who light up the screen with the uniquely American sound that was about to conquer the world"--Container
