Ambushers, The (1967) - I Go Pretty Fast Little besides clever skimpy outfits for the first scene with Dean Martin in the lead role in the third film in the Matt Helm spy-spoof series, first with Linda Foster, then Janice Rule whom we saw captured and maybe-brainwashed in the opening, in The Ambushers 1967, also starring Senta Berger.

Girl Can't Help It, The (1956) - Gene Vincent At the rehearsal hall, the camera finds John Lennon's favorite singer Gene Vincent, performing his signature song, as chastened Tom (Ewell) brings perplexed Jerri (Jayne Mansfield) in to begin the work commanded by her gangster boyfriend, in The Girl Can't Help It, 1956.
Girl Can't Help It, The (1956) - A Story Of Music Tom Ewell in director Frank Tashlin's introduction of the technique he used to open both his Jayne Mansfield comedies, then credits with Little Richard's performance of the title tune by Bobby Troup, from The Girl Can't Help It, 1956.
