BABY, IT'S THE GREATEST! (original print ad - all caps)

Among the many films attempting to capture the emerging rock 'n' roll sound, Frank Tashlin's high-voltage, candy-coloured satire on the 50s popular culture stands out as a masterpiece.

Featuring electrifying performances from rock 'n' rollers The Platters, Little Richard, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran and Fats Domino, cartoon director Tashlin's campy musical courses with the fantastic imagination of an animator.

A buxom Jayne Mansfield ably carries the film as the outrageously voluptuous and tone-deaf girlfriend of a retired racketeer - her first starring role; while Tom Ewell (Seven Year Itch) plays an alcholoic agent hired to transform the gangster's blond bombshell into a movie star.
