5.0 out of 5 stars HELLO MAMIE..... March 2, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The late actor Tommy Noonan did two films in the mid-60's with Jayne Mansfield and Mamie Van Doren respectively. "Promises Promises" with Mansfield and this one with Mamie Van Doren. Both resulted in Playboy spreads [...]. "Three Nuts" is the better of them in my opinion because Mamie is just more interesting to watch. The plot is really bizarre involving getting psychoanalasys for three with only one patient (Noonan, who's very funny) and the whole thing getting out of hand. Mamie plays a stripper named Saxie Symbol who's one of the ones wanting treatment. She looks fabulous [...] The film is low, low budget and alternates in b&w and color. Yet there's a looney, insane quality to it that makes you wonder what Noonan had in mind at all. And a host of character actors running around...Marjorie Bennett, one of the plumbers from "Green Acres", several others. The print from VCI is quite good for a rare piece like this. Only minor scratches and one little jumpy part. There's some partially nude shots of Mamie "behind the scenes" but the best thing is the interview with Van Doren herself. She's delightful. If you're a Van Doren fan this is a must. I hope some her 50's films get DVD release besides "Teacher's Pet". She still has a following.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Nuts In Search Of A Bolt February 23, 2006
Format:DVD
This movie is for the Mamie Van Doren fans. The movie is not important unless you love her and I do. She strips and takes a beer bath and keeps saying "It don't taste like tomatoe juice". No idea what that means. Out of all her films this one is a must.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mamie's Fun with Noonan In Control! November 7, 2012
By Smrz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Now this is one wacky, fun film! If you are a Mamie Van Doren fan, this dvd is a must. If you are a Tommy Noonan fan, this dvd is also a must. Other movie fans would most likely not appreciate this wacky ride. Now Tommy Noonan, who once starred along with Marilyn Monroe in 1953's Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, then moved on to star along with Jayne Mansfield in 1963's Promises, Promises, is in complete control here with Mamie Van Doren in 3 Nut's In Search Of A Bolt, from 1964. I must admit that the title alone cracks me up & has now become part of my funny vocabulary jokes. The plot is very Psychotronic & involves three "nuts'-Mamie Van Doren as Saxie Symbol, a stripper, who teams up with two other 'nuts" seeking psychiatric help. Her partners are an alcoholic used car salesman, played by Paul Gilbert, & a narcissistic male model, played by Paul Cronin. The 3 are all in need of psychiatric help but are unable to pay the doctor's fees. They solve their problem by hiring an unemployed actor, played by Tommy Noonan, to then play out each of their personalities with an expensive psychiatrist, Doctor Myra Von, who is played by Ziva Rodann. The sessions are filmed because the Dr. believes that Noonan has a rare triple personality. The sessions are broadcast on television & make Noonan a big celebrity who then becomes rich & lives happily ever after with Saxie. I know. The plot is totally wacky but actually works quite well with the aid of fine acting by Mamie & Tommy. Noonan is the writer, director, producer, & actor of this film. Just think of the possibility of acting along with 3 of Hollywood's biggest 50's blonde bombshells, Monroe,Mansfield, & Mamie Van Doren. This was not an accident. Unfortunately, in real life, Noonan died in 1968, in his 40's. The dvd by VCI is a real prize. Read more ›

No surprises here, you get what you pay for, a glimps at one of Hollywoods supreme sex goddess' The theatrical trailor on the disk shows the highlites in under two minutes. The entire movie is hard to endure if seen more than once.
There are more theatrical trailors on the disk including Jayne Mansfields nude debut in "Promises Promises".

Format:VHS Tape
Highlight of the slight 3 NUTS IN SEARCH OF A BOLT is 50s sex kitten Mamie Van Doren's brief nude bathtub scene. Produced, written, directed by and starring Tommy Noonan (he appeared with Marilyn Monroe in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"), this was shot in b&w and includes a few inserted color scenes.

SYNOPSIS--
A retired stripper who shares a place with a narcissistic male model and another man with a drinking problem meets *THE* Tommy Noonan in an unemployment line. The three roommates need therapy but can't afford individual sessions, so they convince Tommy to learn all their symptoms and consult a shrink. The doc arranges a closed-circuit broadcast to fellow psychiatrists when he thinks Tommy has a multiple personality disorder, but the broadcast goes over the national airwaves, creating a sensation.

"3 Nuts" is also on DVD.
Mamie Van Doren headlines in GIRLS TOWN (1959) along with Mel Tormé, Paul Anka and Dick 'Daddy-O" Contino. This 'C' grade teensploitation film is one of the very few Van Doren starring vehicles available. (VHS only)

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 viewer poll rating found at a film resource website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good picture quality November 5, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This dvd has a very good picture quality for a film of this age. There are a couple of mildly risque scenes, but the majority of it is actually tame enough for family viewing. I would say this movie is more of a collector's item, than a great story. What I liked best about this movie is the surprising sense of nostalgia it evokes...much like a vintage comic book put on film. The extra features that come with this dvd are interesting, & help to make this purchase a worthwhile one.
