Schlagerpiraten Regie Frank Tashlin
It arranges itself into a kind of altar to youthful abandon and cacophonous modernity. But it is the star-studded line-up of early rock revolutionaries that anchor the film’s wholly-self aware, paper-thin plot, and none but Tashlin could capture that antic energy with sufficient pizzaz.

Mansfield’s performance is a charming whirlwind of ‘50s womanhood so exaggerated and perfect it’s hard to believe it ever truly existed. In the title song, Little Richard sings, “She got a lot of what they call the most.” Watching Mansfield giggle and strut and command the CinemaScope frame, who could ever argue with that?

Tashlin’s story keeps pace with a series of surprises, most notably one ingenious tonal shift that finds Tom home alone and haunted by the ghost of his dead lover as her spectral presence sings “Cry Me a River” from every corner of his barren house. Even in a world of candy-coated imagery, with a majestic frame to show it off, the director reveals human frailty lurking beneath the surface.
