The Girl Can't Help It

"Va-Va-Va-Voom ! "

-- Synopsis: Tom Miller (Tom Ewell), a has-been, down-and-out talent agent who has six weeks to turn a stunning blonde bimbo bombshell Georgianna Jordan (Jayne Mansfield) into a star so gangster Edmond O'Brien (" Fats" Marty Murdock) can marry her.

* The opening scene has Southern California West Coast Swing dancers Lou Southern and Gil and Nikki Brady dancing. The music here is a nostalgic Rock and Roll and allows you to see some early legends of rock n' roll.
