Description by OLDIES.com:
She's Jayne Mansfield, the dazzling platinum superstar who put the S in "sizzle" and shook up all of Hollywood with uncanny comic timing and a knockout figure. Mansfield slew audiences with a core of hilarious hits, but among her best are three drop-dead funny comedies that capture her at her peak.
The Girl Can't Help It: Showcasing music legends such as Fats Domino, the Platters, Little Richard and many others, this comic romp co-stars Edmond O'Brien as a mob boss whose singer girlfriend (Mansfield) can't actually hold a note ... but is carrying a torch for her talent agent!
The Sheriff Of Fractured Jaw: This hilarious satire co-stars Tony Randall as adman Rock Hunter, who signs movie star Rita Marlow (Mansfield) for a lipstick campaign, but he strikes out when Rita's bodybuilder boyfriend thinks Rock and Rita are having an affair!
Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?: In this Comedy / Western, a refined English gentleman becomes sheriff of the toughest town this side of Tombstone. Mansfield stars as the sexy blonde saloon owner who teaches him how!
THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT: Mansfield's first starring role is as the outrageously voluptuous but tone-deaf girlfriend of a retired racketeer. He hires a talent agent to transform her into a movie star and they fall in love. High-voltage, candy-colored camp, by comic maven Tashlin, which features some great early rock-and-roll performances from the Platters, Little Richard, and Fats Domino.
WILL SUCCESS SPOIL ROCK HUNTER?: This adaptation of George Axelrod's successful Broadway play takes satiric aim at the television industry with its tale of an ad copywriter who gets in over his head while trying to save the "Stay-Put Lipstick" account. The glamorous star he wants to endorse the product will only agree if he helps her make her boyfriend jealous.
THE SHERIFF OF FRACTURED JAW: Englishman Jonathan Tibbs (Kenneth More) travels to the unruly Old West town of Fractured Jaw, attempting to expand the fortunes of his uncle's company. By a series of mishaps he becomes an accidental hero, and the townspeople make him their sheriff. Jayne Mansfield plays the saloon girl, Kate, who provides counsel for the unwitting authority.
