Girl Can't Help It DVD Features
Frank Tashlin's THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT (1956) never made it to laserdisc, principally because 20th Century Fox never was able to find stereo sound elements. Now, in England, Second Sight Entertainment has issued the movie on DVD in a nicely packaged deluxe edition, letterboxed in the proper 2.35:1 aspect ratio in a gorgeous source print where every image is so crystal clear and the color so radiant that it's just one step short of 3-D in crispness and relief. The 93-minute movie has been given a generous 20 chapters that break the movie down more than adequately, labeling all of the songs as well as the major plot points. There's no trailer, and there's no setting for audio selection, but there is a priceless supplement, a 20-minute interview with John Waters, who discusses the movie in detail -- his observations are extremely prescient where the music and the look of the movie are concerned, and he points up some of the fascinating inconsistencies of the movie, such as Little Richard performing in a fancy nightclub, which was definitely not the case for rock & roll in 1956; the segment also parallels Divine's use of "The Girl Can't Help It" with the way it is used in this movie. And he points up -- in language that one doubts will make to any U.S. release of this disc -- parallels between THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT and the films of Douglas Sirk (which makes one wonder why Todd Haynes hasn't yet attempted a remake).
