One of Jayne Mansfield last films and certainly the most unrestrained was this outrageous sex romp on an ocean liner.The plot,involving bed-hopping and mistaken identities,served as an excuse for her patented infamous nude scenes.This Provocative,sexy,sensuos delight was quite controversial back in the early 60's which the original version was banned in many cities and replaced by a much edited version.When Playboy published a group of still shots from the movie including one described as Jayne"writhing seductively in bed" that issue of Playboy was banned by many cities across the country.Overall,this movie is a Provocatve,Sexy,Sensuous delight that's very well worth watching especially in it's original,unedited movie version!!

Promises! Promises! is the ultimate Jayne Mansfiled movie. It is a must for any Jayne Mansfield fan. The movie is very low budget. There is a scene where Marie MacDonald and Tommy Noonan are walking and you can see the microphone in front of them. Jayne Mansfield makes up for all that. I have seen it many times and from the opening credits which thank Jayne Mansfields parents for providing her body to the end it is a Jayne Manfields fan dream come true.

It is quite understandable that this film was seen as 'shocking' when it was released.After all,Jayne was the first 'major-star' to appear naked in a movie.Actually those naked scenes are quite strange,and seem out-of-context in the movie plot(if you call that a movie plot!).When,at one point she is in bed naked,she actually looks like she is mastur...Jayne was 30 years old,looked absolutely sensational,mostly as she sings'Promise Her Anything' in that floor-lenght gown.Wow !
This movie is a must-see for any Mansfield fan.We see her with Mickey Hargitay the year before they finally got their divorce;also on a sad note,we get to see Marie 'The Body' McDonald in her last film role(died in 1965).Also another bonus is to watch T.C. Jones,the female impersonator,being himself (Gay as a picnic basket,as Sophia in The Golden Girls,would say !)
In no way is this film a Classic,but it is good-fluff,and it sure beats the other poor choices Ms. Mansfield made in her career.

When I was a little boy I found my dad's Playboy issue where Jayne Mansfield appeared nude in a pictorial about a movie she was filming. The title was "Promises, Promises" and it never played here, in Mexico, due to censorship. The memory stayed within me and now, quite older, I could get the film and notice that it's a low budget comedy that exploited Mansfield's sex appeal and her magnificent body. Nothing much to it, except that it brings back memories about an era where we were naïve. It's fun and one gets to see a female legend of the fifties.

In 1959 a man named Russ Meyer released a film called "The Immoral Mr. Teas" and created a genre of his own called Nudie Cuties. Many immitations soon followed by other exploitation filmmakers like David Friedman, Harry Novak and Doris Wishman. But the most famous of these other cuties was the one that featured the world famous Hollywood legend, Jayne Mansfield in all her naked glory called "Promises! Promises!".

The film has been often credited as the first time a major actress has appeared nude onscreen. This is not necessarily true, Heddy Lamarr exposed her assets in "Ecstasy" in 1933, and Annette Kellerman did the same in "A Daughter of the Gods" even earlier in 1916. However, being this is mainstream Hollywood here, this certainly can be considered very bold for it's time.

In 1963, Jayne's career was on the decline. Blonde bombshells were being tossed aside in favor of more sophisticated brunettes like Audrey Hepburn, Mary Tyler Moore among others due to what I call the "Jackie Kennedy cultural phase". So Jayne needed a gimmick to boost her career and this is what she chose, something totally outragous as always.

Is this film worth watching? Yes, for Jayne's eyepopping figure only! The rest of the film is pretty bad involving a silly plot taking place on cruise liner co-starring her then-husband Micky Hargitay and comedian Tommy Noonan. It has a few humorous moments scattered about here and there, but all just silly cornball stuff. The nude scenes are basically random clips edited in with not much relevance to the "plot" and are more or less dream sequences. We see Jayne coming out of the bathroom topless, then readying a bath with her beautiful bubbly boohind exposed (I still say her rear is every bit as eyecatching as her chest!

This is a sexy romp from the 60's and it is a really a lot of fun. The movie has a number of nude scenes of Jayne at her most voluptuous. I'm also looking forward to seeing the photos that were not used in the original Playboy spread. They are supposed to be in with the bonus features.

Jayne Mansfield's most revealing movie. Need I say more? Though the movie is in Black & White it was the subject of a Color layout in PLAYBOY....one of their best selling editions. If you're a Marilyn, Mamie and Jayne fan this is a must for your collection.Promises! Promises! (Amazon.com Exclusive)

Not really impressed. No doubt, in 1963, four years before her death in a car crash, Jayne Manesfield had one HELL of a body! and yes you do see her topless in this one...But...the packaging leaves the impression this movie is in color..its not. Secondly, Mansfield's much vautned nudity all occurs in the first 5 minutes...afterwards there are flashbacks now and then...but always the same scenes...If you are watching this movie to see Jayne nude. once she comes out of the bathroom at the beginning, you can take the DVD out and go do something else...you've seen all the 'good parts...' and sad to say, Miss Mansfield nude is about all this movie offers. (Though her acting is better than she is usually given credit for)
