Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?

Time Out says

A frantic, scattershot satire on '50s morals, advertising, sex and television. The not inconsiderable charms of Jayne Mansfield are much to the fore, but it's Randall's performance as timid advertising executive Rockwell Hunter that holds the whole thing together. While trying to persuade Mansfield to employ her oh-so-kissable lips in a commercial for Stay-Put lipstick, Randall finds himself inadvertently promoted as the world's hottest lover - much to the chagrin of his fiancée (Drake). Not in the same league as the wonderful Girl Can't Help It, but possessed of the same comic strip vitality and frenzied humour.
