Jayne Mansfield Wikipedia - Jayne Mansfield gives a very good performance in this rather serious romantic comedy with Tom Ewell Wikipedia - Tom Ewell and Edmond O'Brien Wikipedia - Edmond O'Brien. The plot is clever and has a few twists. There are a large number of appearances by the big musical acts of the day: Gene Vincent Wikipedia - , Eddie Cochran Wikipedia - , Fats Domino Wikipedia - , The Platters Wikipedia - and Little Richard Wikipedia - . Some scenes could have been very good, rather than just good, with more time spent upon them. There is only one location shoot and it is at a beach.

 

Jayne Mansfield makes her entrance

This is the moment in which Jayne Mansfield's character makes her big entrance. Fats (back to camera) has attempted to convince the protagonist, a talent agent, that his fiance, Jayne Mansfield, could be made into a singing and dancing act. He has not met her yet and just as he is giving a rejection speech to Fats, telling him that these endeavors always fail, the door has opened behind him to reveal Jayne Mansfield. The drama of Jayne Mansfield's entrance is on par with Rita Hayworth's Wikipedia - Rita Hayworth famous entrance as Gilda in Gilda (1946) Wikipedia - Gilda. In fact the final round of the competition for most dramatic entrance is between these two moments.

Jayne Mansfield certainly had her place among the leading ladies of the day and would merit that description solely for her performance in this motion picture.

The Treniers
The Trenier Brothers Wikipedia - The Treniers perform a cameo. The Treniers were a mainstay of the Las Vegas strip from its genesis right through to the mid-Nineties when I saw them last and they were still going strong with two brothers and a younger cousin, who was himself in his Sixties. Here they are in their prime.
