In Toby Miller's commentary in the 2006 DVD release of "The Girl Can't Help It", he erroneously says that Little Richard is singing the song "The Girl Can't Help It" in his appearance with his band *in the nightclub scene*. Little Richard is actually singing his hit titled "Ready Teddy" in that scene. See more »

Scenes in this movie were either very interesting and funny or they were very stupid and annoying.There was no middle ground.
THE GOOD - One of the interesting parts was seeing some of the early rock performers such as Gene Vincent and Bluecaps, Fats Domino, The Platters and several others. It also was nice to see Julie London in one number. The humor was mainly provided by Tom Ewell, who played a role similar to the one he played in the much-funnier "Seven-Year Itch."
THE BAD - Annoying was Edmund O'Brien, who was parodying a loud-mouth gangster. Well, he was so loud and abrasive it became offensive after just a short time. Mansfield was okay. She was in the movie, obviously, for one thing: show off her mammoth breasts which, with the pointed bras of the day, looked just plain weird and unreal (yeah, I know...they were real!)
Despite the patches of humor and music, the movie as a whole dragged. It was hard to keep interest in this. For its time period, however - the mid '50s - I'm sure this movie must have freaked out a lot of people.
