Jayne Mansfield stars as an archetypal 'dumb blonde' in the very first Technicolour rock'n'roll musical. Her Mafia lover (Edmond O'Brien) is determined that she should secure pop stardom, despite her lack of any discernible talent. To this end he entrusts her into the care of a down-on-his-luck agent (Tom Ewell), who strives to make her record a hit, even though she only strikes one (piercing) note during the whole song. This satire on the music biz features legendary appearances from the likes of Fats Domino, Gene Vincent and Little Richard.
