Blu-ray Release: Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?

Blu-ray Release Date: Feb. 19, 2019
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

Writer-director Frank Tashlin’s (Rock-a-bye Baby) uproarious satire on advertising, Hollywood, pop culture, and just about everything else he can think of, 1957’s Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? stars Tony Randall (Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex*) as the echt ad man, loving and hating his profession in equal measure.

Hunter’s biggest challenge comes when, soliciting an endorsement for Stay-Put Lipstick, he lands a big star – the inimitable Jayne Mansfield’s hilarious Rita Marlowe – in more ways than one. Fantastically subversive, this candy-colored bitter pill was allegedly a powerful influence on none other than Jean-Luc Godard.

Bonus features on this Twilight Time release include the following:

-Isolated Music Track
-Audio Commentary with Film Historian Dana Polan
-Fox Movietone Newsreels
-Original Theatrical Trailer
