Often called the best rock 'n' roll film ever made, this high-powered, high-voltage comedy features music by Fats Domino, Little Richard and the Platters and introduces the world to a blonde bombshell named Jayne Mansfield!

Mansfield is sensational as moll Jerri Jordan to Edmond O'Brien's Marty Murdock, the mobster determined to make her a singing star. The trouble begins when Murdock hires talent agent Tom Miller (Tom Ewell) to groom her: Miller quickly realizes that she can't sing a note...AND that he's completely in love with her! This CinemaScope color film hilariously spoofs both musicals and gangster films and also features sparkling performances by Ray Anthony, Julie London, the Treniers and Abbey Lincoln.
