One of Frank Tashlin’s greatest exercises in comic strip vulgarity with a moral (1956). The plot is pure idiocy: an alcoholic press agent (Tom Ewell) is hired by a gangster (Edmund O’Brien) to groom his talentless but architecturally unbelievable girlfriend (Jayne Mansfield) for stardom; yet the girl yearns for domesticity, falls in love with Ewell, and the gangster becomes a famous rock ‘n’ roll singer. See what I mean? Yet Tashlin’s savage lampoon of American notions of success and fulfillment is hilarious and genuinely appealing. He topped himself the next year with Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?
