Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?

With his exaggerated visuals, eye-popping color and frantic characterizations, Frank Tashlin has been promoted to a genuine ‘fifties icon. This freewheeling comedy hits on the Top Tashlin fetish subjects: Hollywood glitz, Madison Avenue neurosis, dynamic women, wimpy men and… and… bosoms, dammit. As the bubbly yet calculating sex symbol Rita Marlowe, Jayne Mansfield places career issues way ahead of anything to do with sex. Tony Randall receives his first leading film role as a Mad Man who’ll jump through hoops to keep an account. But the surprise is Betsy Drake, who more than anyone represents the conflicts facing the pre-feminist ’50s woman: she defines success her own way.

Movie Poster of the Week: The Posters of Jerry Lewis

  • MUBI
Above: Danish poster for Geisha Boy (Frank Tashlin, USA, 1958).On March 16 Jerry Lewis turns 90 years old, making him one of the oldest living great filmmakers along with Jonas Mekas (93), Seijun Suzuki (92), Stanley Donen (91), D.A. Pennebaker (90), Claude Lanzmann (90) and Andrzej Wajda (90). And if you have any doubt about his status as one of the great auteurs go and see any of the films he directed at Museum of Modern Art's’s current retrospective: Happy Birthday, Mr. Lewis: The Kid Turns 90.To flip through the films of Jerry Lewis in poster form is to encounter an awful lot of crossed eyes, toothy grins and outsized heads on small bodies (a familiar trope for comedians in movie posters whether it's Fernandel or Cantinflas or Buster Keaton.) That said, Lewis also seems to have inspired illustrators around the world. The French love Jerry Lewis, as the cliché goes, but so, it seemed, did the Germans,

Marla English Dead at 77 – Starred in She-creature and Voodoo Woman

Her movie career only lasted four years, but after playing uncredited as “Girl at Songwriter’s Party” in Hitchcock’s Rear Window, the stunning Marla English had a string of featured roles. Two films, The She-creature (1956) and Voodoo Woman (1957) are cult classics featuring memorable Paul Blaisdell creatures. She’d been modeling since age 12 but she reportedly had some unpleasant experiences with a few people in show business, including Dean Martin and, particularly, billionaire Howard Hughes, and dropped out of the scene. She was quite secretive and would never sit down for an interview or discuss her film career. Marla English was 77 when she died over a month ago, but because of her reclusiveness, news of her death took a while to reach her fans.

From The Ut San Diego:

Not long after a 16-year-old Marla English was crowned the Del Mar Fair’s youngest Fairest of the Fair in 1951, Hollywood came calling.
