20th Century Fox Original U.S. Half Sheet Poster (22x28) Good Condition Only


Original 20th Century Fox Half Sheet Poster (22x28) for the Frank Tashlin musical comedy, THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT (1956) starring Tom Ewell, Jayne Mansfield, and Edmond O'Brien. This hilarious musical farce is about a down-and-out gangster (O'Brien) who hires an alcoholic press agent (Ewell) to make his blonde bombshell girlfriend (Mansfield) a recording star in six months. This film is a very, very funny send-up of rock 'n' roll and show business, with a marvelously deadpan performance from Tom Ewell. But the real star, of course, is Jayne Mansfield, who realized early in her career that making fun of her bombshell image was her best bet. Amplifying this overstuffed performance were some of the greats of rock and roll's golden age: Little Richard, Fats Domino, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and the BlueCaps and the immortal do-wop masters, The Platters. And who can forget the lovely Julie London? Not me. This original half sheet poster was used in a theater, and although it was never folded, it is clearly in need of conservations. Colors are fine, but this poster needs to be paper-backed. We probably will do that at some point, but for now we are listing it at an appropriate price. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is the authentic 20th Century Fox One-Sheet poster for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
