5 May 2001 | by (Long Beach) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie years ago in high school in my drama class. Thats when I came to know Jayne Mansfield. Like a lot of people I only was familar with the Marilyn legacy. If Loni ever became a character in a movie this was the one. The effect of this movie made me a huge Jayne Mansfield fan. If this movie ever repeats on tv its a must see! I wish I could buy it. I would give it a 10 but it has Arnold you know who in it! It could have done without him. 1-10 (9) Z.
