In this satirical comedy, mobster Fats Murdock (Edmond O'Brien) wants his talentless girlfriend, Jerri Jordan (Jayne Mansfield), to become a star, so he hires Tom Miller (Tom Ewell), an unsuccessful agent, to do just that. As Tom and Jerri work together to make her a rock & roll sensation, they begin to develop more than a working relationship. This film features appearances by Fats Domino, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, and Little Richard.
