Synopsis
Back from the pen, former King of the jukeboxes, bombastic Marty "Fats" Murdock, takes a break from sentimental viewings of home movies of his arrests to assign down-and-out PR man Tom Miller his toughest job: make Marty's moll, Jerri Jordan, a star! Only, aside from her physical assets--which can cause glasses to crack, ice to melt, and milk to boil--Jerri at first seems to have no talent, especially alongside chart-busting acts like Little Richard, Gene Vincent, The Platters, Fats Domino, and Julie London. But celebrity--and love?--do ensue when her one unique talent is discovered.
