The Girl Can't Help It (1956)

The Girl Can't Help it is a 1956 comedy musical film about a gangster who hires down-and-out press agent to make his blonde bimbo girlfriend a singing star.
The movie was originally intended as a Hollywood screen-vehicle for the American sex symbol Jayne Mansfield, with the subplot being a satire of teenagers and their rock'n'roll music.

The movie features cameo performances of early rock'n'roll stars such as Little Richard, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent and his Blue Caps.
