Customer Reviews

The premise of the film is unique, to say the least.
Michael King
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.
Mark Norvell
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 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.

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.

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".

Tommy Noonan had the distinction of appearing in the following movies: "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" (1953), with Marilyn Monroe; "Promises! Promises!" (1963), with Jayne Mansfield; and "3 Nuts In Search Of A Bolt" (1964), with Mamie Van Doren. Tommy co-wrote, directed, and starred in the third film. The scenes (in color) of Mamie Van Doren doing a strip tease, and taking a beer bath, are worth the price of the DVD. The rest of the movie is in black-and-white, which adds to its strangeness. The premise of the film is unique, to say the least. Tommy Noonan (as himself) is hilarious when he acts out the psychological problems of sexually frustrated stripper Saxie Symbol (Mamie Van Doren), alcoholic car salesman Joe Lynch (Paul Gilbert), and kleptomaniacal narcissist Bruce Bernard (John Cronin). His session with the psychiatrist is supposed to be broadcast on closed circuit television to other psychiatrists. It is accidentally broadcast on network television, and is a smash hit! Tommy Noonon was ahead of his time, in this era of "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew," and similar shows on television. In the interview with Mamie Van Doren, she mentions how Tommy Noonan wanted to include out-takes from the film, and show them at the end of the movie, or even during the closing credits. That didn't happen, but it certainly did in later movies, such as the 1979 movie "Being There," which starred Peter Sellers. Tommy Noonan was a very creative comedian who left us much too soon.
