Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? is every bit as darkly satirical, cartoonish, loopy, and entertaining as the previous pairing between director Frank Tashlin and star Jayne Mansfield, The Girl Can’t Help It.

In this spoof of the TV advertising industry, Rockwell Hunter is the low man on the totem pole at the advertising company where he works.

Release date: 4 October 1957

"15.4. 2019 Heavenly Jayne Mansfield is Rita Marlowe, the sexiest and the most flamboyant film star in the world, who would do anything for success so she is an embodiment of artificial and shallow modern culture. Rockwell Hunter, a struggling TV writer, tries to get Rita to endorse a new lipstick but to do this he must pretend to be Rita's lover. "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" is a film that asks some serious questions regarding the mass media that provokes mass hysteria and the advertising "
