It is probably O'Brien's best film.
Dr. Fred R. Eichelman
Jayne's delicious perfomrmance here is as good as any of Marilyn Monroe and Jean Harlow's best comic work.

This long overdue collection deserves a place on your DVD shelf as much for archeological as entertainment value. The two Frank Tashlin-directed films ("The Girl Can't Help It" and "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter"), which parody the more garish aspects of Fifties life but manage to work equally well as celebrations of it, make this set worth the price. "The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw" is icing, provided by the otherwise formidable Raoul Walsh.

"The Girl Can't Help It" is unlike any other film of its time, or of any other time for that matter. Equal parts comedy, love story, Hollywood musical, comic book fantasy, crass titillation, live action cartoon, and Rock `n' Roll road show, it somehow succeeds in engaging the viewer to the point that he or she genuinely likes the main characters - even the felonious ones - and inexplicably soaring above and beyond the sum of its parts. Sentimentality is held in check by the adept lunacy of the script and the strategic inclusion of then-embryonic Rock acts, and perhaps it's those acts that cause the film to transcend itself.

The Rock `n' Roll, Rockabilly, and R&B stars, near misses, and never-would-be's featured in TGCHI are showcased regally. This isn't one of those low budget, black and white, Alan Freed-mentored Rocksploitation vehicles so common at the time. While the acts are presented in a traditional manner for popular musicians in movies (similar to the way, say, Glenn Miller or Harry James were in the `40s), they're nevertheless the recipients of some perks that were usually reserved for A-list leading ladies and men, such as dramatic, "heroic" low angle shots, dollying boom shots, eye-popping color by de Luxe, and "the grandeur of Cinemascope", suggesting that something bigger than life was being archived for the ages.

Although Jayne Mansfield never reached the heights of popularity and fame
of Marilyn Monroe, her films are highly entertaining, campy and great fun.
I am not familiar with The Sheriff Of Fractured Jaw, but I rate
Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (with Tony Randall) as a little gem of a Cinemascope,
Technicolor comedy. As she does in all her films, Jayne plays
a highly exaggerated parody of Monroe, but brings her own brand of humor
and sweetness to her roles. The Girl Can't Help It (also Technicolor and Cinemascope) has a big bonus because it features some legendary music stars of the 1950s: Fats Domino, The Platters, Gene Vincent and Little Richard. This one's a must for fans of early Rock 'n Roll. I forgot to mention that sultry Julie London sings her huge pop hit, "Cry Me A River".
All the films look beautiful. The colors are rich and fresh as when the films were first released.
The Girl Can't Help It looks most amazing! You will not be disappointed.

Just got it -- here is some more info since it's sketchy above. All titles are listed as widescreen (2.35:1), in English stereo. These are all CinemaScope titles and they look quite good.

"Girl Can't Help It" includes "Blonde Ambition," an hourlong A&E "Biography" documentary; commentary by "film historian" Toby Miller; and original trailer. Spanish mono and subtitles.

"Will Success Spoil Rock Junter?" with commentary by "film historian" Dana Polan. Brief newsreel clip on Mansfield in the U.S. capital. The English audio actually appears to be in four-channel. Spanish stereo.

"Sheriff of Fractured Jaw" lists only a still gallery and the original theatrical teaser and trailer. French 4.0 LCRS and Spanish subtitles.

I am a die-hard, dyed in the wool Jayne Mansfield fan. I am completely delighted that there is finally a Jayne set out. Despite the often simple comparison to Marilyn Monroe, Jayne was a different kind of "dumb blonde". Jayne had a screen energy and luminosity that could captivate a person. She was a comedic talent that, unfortunately was not allowed to shine as much as it should have.

This collection is nice. A lot of Mansfield fans have been waiting for "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" and "The Girl Can't Help It" to be realeased on DVD. The one disappointment is the missing movies. Jayne's career included some, albeit, low budget and explotation films, but her career could be better represented. This set would have been more complete with the addition of "Kiss Them For Me", "The Wayward Bus" and "It Happened in Athens". At least that would logically keep on track with her career and offer the viewer a better sampling of her tantalizing, fabulous persona. Unfortunately, this set does limit her as an actress, just has Hollywood did. But Jayne is a treat, in any size portion!

Jayne Mansfield has become one of the most legendary names of 1950's cinema, ironic given many dismissed her at the time as a Marilyn Monroe clone which impeded her career (only seven major films at 20th Century-Fox and virtually everything else she was in was a low-budget "independent" film given scant release and attention). Yet like the unprolific James Dean, Grace Kelly, and Mae West, Jayne Mansfield remains a legendary pop culture icon far more so than many stars with 60 or more motion pictures to their credit. I think it's because like Dean, Kelly, and West, Jayne Mansfield hit the bullseye in a few pictures and it was enough to cement her legend. Both of Mansfield's bell-ringers, THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT and WILL SUCCESS SPOIL ROCK HUNTER, are on this collection with the added treat of a good little comedy-western THE SHERIFF OF FRACTURED JAW.

THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT - Jayne stars with Tom Ewell (Monroe's comic leading man in THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH) in this comedy with music about a record promoter hired by a gangster to promote his talentless mistress into a pop singer. The three leading roles seem perilously close to those from BORN YESTERDAY but with it's three distinctive performers (Edmond O'Brien being the third) it's not that noticable. Jayne plays the girl (duh!!!) who despite her figure resembling a Playboy cartoon really wants to be nothing but a home-loving wife ("Nobody thinks I'm equipped for motherhood" she sighs, as her double D's practically pop out of her dress.) Director Frank Tashlin was a former cartoonist and the movie resembles an animated picture with outrageous sight gags and wacky humor. And the movie is loaded with music numbers that "expresses the culture, the refinement, and polite grace of the present day" - rock n' roll, baby!!
