One of the just plain funniest satires. Frank Tashlin has fun with and merrily tears apart our obsession with big boobs, celebrity, gangster films, the aburdity of Cinemascope and just about anything else in the line of fire. I avoided this film for years, thinking it would be trash. It is instead a very smart film about our love of trash. Tom Ewell is just great as the erst-while agent, literally scared for his life. Jayne Maynesfield is Jayne Maynesfield and, believe me, it is acting. Edmund O'Brien gives one of the most hilarious, over-the-top performances ever. A perfect farce performance of some one who thinks he is much better and important than he is. And the rock numbers in it are priceless. If you are fan of early real rock, see this film. The REAL rock 'n roll.
