Lowest Rated: 14% Caprice (1967)

Birthday: Feb 19, 1913

Birthplace: Weehawken, New Jersey, USA

Former cartoonist who entered features as a comedy writer ("The Paleface" 1948, etc.) and turned to directing with "The First Time" (1952), bringing his exuberant, exhilarating comic-strip style with him. Besides his eight films with the appropriately cast Jerry Lewis, Tashlin's name is chiefly connected with Jayne Mansfield, whose only notable films--"The Girl Can't Help It" (1955) and the brilliant satire of the advertising business, "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" (1956)--he engineered.
