Jayne Mansfield Collection
Sex, gangsters and rock 'n' roll blend in "The Girl Can't Help It" (1956), one of the '50s best comedies and the film that made Jayne Mansfield a star. Mob boss Edmond O'Brien coerces agent Tom Ewell into making his talentless girlfriend (Jayne) a singing star. With performances by Little Richard, Gene Vincent, and Fats Domino. Next, "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" (1957). Find out in a wildly funny spoof of Hollywood and Madison Avenue. Struggling New York ad man Tony Randall saves his company by convincing sexpot Mansfield to endorse a line of lipstick, only to become a celebrity himself when he's mistaken for her new beau. With Betsy Drake, Mickey Hargitay, and a cameo by Groucho Marx. Finally, a prim English gentleman (Kenneth More) befriends an unruly saloon girl (Mansfield) in the Old West and reluctantly becomes "The Sheriff Of Fractured Jaw" (1958). Comedic western also stars Henry Hull, Bruce Cabot, William Campbell. 4 3/4 hrs. total on three discs. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English; newsreel footage; "Biography" episode.
