The Movie: The Girl Can’t Help It (1956)
What Is It?: Former Looney Tunes animator Frank Tashlin makes a live-action Looney Tunes cartoon starring live-action cartoon Jayne Mansfield. Little Richard, Eddie Cochran, Fat Domino, and The Treniers make the floorboards quake with a seismic blast of Rock & Roll in the days when Rock & Roll was still a tiny, little baby.
Why Today?: On this day in 1932, Little Richard is born.
