Link do filme: John Waters discute The Girl Can't Help It (1956), de Frank Tashlin

It’s no surprise that this nutty and energetic Frank Tashlin-directed Jayne Mansfield vehicle is one of John Waters’ favorites. He’s very good at observing its ironies (“Camp is for rich people!”) and its establishment inversions. He also extolls the virtues of Deluxe Color sobre Technicolor, but not after misidentifying the color process that was used.

I hope that, like me, you’ll immediately put The Girl Can’t Help It on your watchlist. That Amazon link is to a compilation DVD that also includes Tashlin’s great, Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?

“In Albania, is anything so bad it’s good?” “I think of Jayne as Babs the Monkey.” Little Richard was “…the King of Rock ‘n Roll, and the Queen of Rock ‘n Roll.” “The Chuckles; what happened to The Chuckles…?”
