If Tashlin had had the nerve, he would have romantically paired Jayne Mansfield with Little Richard and set race relations in the United States forward by about thirty years.

Not one of Tashlin's better efforts.

Sure, the scenery is splashy and sporty in color and CinemaScope. But the show is as meager and witless as a cheap pin-up magazine joke.
