Thanks! Share it with your friends!
I was in the middle of compiling a 1950’s collection,and one of the songs
reminded me of this film. So,I came here to investigate,and was pleasantly
surprised to find this gem of a movie in it’s entirety. Thanks for the
upload. I just love Edmond O’Brien.
Love Mansfield… she’s so camp in this…
@1:30:00 the guy sings like “Fred Flintstone”
She and Marilyn Monroe are almost exactly the same. Same look and voice.
Always liked Tom Ewell but he wasn’t the type you’d expect to be the male
lead opposite both Marylin Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. He did a good job
Very good. The girl can´t help it … Great movie. Young Little Ricahrd. I
first saw in 1978. The film was black and white. Now is colored.
My all time favourite film, along with Gilda and Breakfast at Tiffanys :)
Why are the screen so small? it`s a pity for the nice movie.
Frank Tashlin was one of the great directors of the 1950-1960’s. Besides
directing Jayne Mansfield here, he also knew how to use Jerry Lewis and
Doris Day to great advantage. His movies are brilliantly insane. The
exceptional camera work of Leon Shamroy gives this movie extra interest.
Wowser cool and hip baby! Tom Ewell has to be one of the luckiest blokes
in the flickers
VA-VA-VA VOOM JANE!! ROCK N ROLL BABY…
Jayne, the first to show herself off as cartoon-ish. And Julie London, WOW.
I was 12 years old when I saw this at the Metropolitan Theater in
Leominster MA. I went to see The Platters and Fats Domino and Little
Richard on the big screen. Then I discovered Jayne Mansfield!
Saw this in 56 or 57 when I was a kid. Apart from the loin tightening
charms of Ms Mansfield, we really went to see Little Richard, Fats Domino,
Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent. The rest of the performers here were the
choice of the older generation film makers who simply did not understand
what is was about rock n roll that teenagers went mad for. It was a pretty
short run – by 1960 the golden age was over and what came next was ok but
even the Beatles – as talented as they were – would never have existed
without this stuff.
Still another movie in my collection…..anything with Mansfield in it is
Thanks for movie, I really enjoyed the music especially Fats Domino, Little
Richard and the Platters….
It’s odd that a movie that treated Rock so cynically would become so
influential to the music. It was also influential in the Beatles history,
especially the Cochran song, which cemented the Lennon-McCartney
get out the BONG—–NICE!!!! PLATINUM LOVLINESSS
The Girl Can’t Help It 1956 full movie
This is a great f*****n’ movie!!!!!
KILL LA KILL
Edmond O’Brien is VERY funny in this!
His only comedy role?
For some reason I love this movie and my Mother was a little girl when it
Living from this film as of 3-2-2014
I love this movie
Just Brilliant….Classic beloved By Truffaut…Godard &
Bertolucci……only love for Frank T.
men are such suckers
Aspect ratio on this seems kind of small for CinemaScope. Dark, too. Hope
this is a good one.
What a great movie with so many great stars of the early cinema….not to
mention Jane Mansfield…..
Tom Ewell wasn’t much of a looker and not that great an actor so how did
he happen to play opposite the two sexiest Women in the world, Monroe (The
Seven Year Itch) and Mansfield(The Girl Can’t Help Him)
Let’s not forget the beautiful Julie London singing her million seller Cry
Me a River in a dream sequent (intoxicated)
My friend sent me this! Thanks Brenda.
ps. 3 ICONS..JAYNE, EDDIE AND GENE BLESS THEM FOR WHAT THEY GAVE US
Oh yes. Marilyn could act. She had a soft sweetness about her. Her hair was
naturally curly. Jayne needed a wig. The bleach was ruining her scalp.
¡¡¡Miles de gracias!!! Desde Salamanca (Spain) ROCK AND ROLL IS HERE TO STAY
Probably the greatest rock n’ roll movie ever made.
She can’t help it . The girl can’t help. She can’t help it. The girl can’t
What happened to the picture? It’s 5″ x 5″
