Hefty hoodlum Marty "Fats" Murdock (Edmond O'Brien) employs has-been agent Tom Miller (Tom Ewell) to transform his girlfriend, Jerri Jordan (Jayne Mansfield), into a singing star because he trusts Tom not to make a pass at her. However, the more time Tom spends with the stunning blonde, the more smitten he becomes. His troubles multiply when he realizes that Jerri can't sing a note, is not in love with Murdock and wants to settle down with a nice man like himself. THE GIRL CAN’T HELP IT was NOT nominated for any Oscars. And so what? It’s garish, bawdy, opulent, and features appearances by Fats Domino, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, and Little Richard. Isn’t that enough?
