After mentioning the film The Girl Can't Help It yesterday, I figured I'd look for the prime musical moments for you. I know, if you're like me, you'd put it on the back burner until you have the time, Well, you lazy sapsucker, I did the legwork for you. Along the way I ran into the whole move, along with high resolution scans of stills of Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps and Little Richard, good enough to print on that fancy paper, pop into a frame and give to your friend, the aging old school diehard.

Note: If you're inclined, I wouldn't lag. Clips from this movie don't stay online for long. You could always start a search from scratch, but that's another thing you may never get around to. While the film isn't exactly high art, where else are you going to see Gene Vincent, Little Richard and Eddie Cochran in the same movie? There's a bunch of other acts in it as well (complete list here). Plus, a bonus for you dogs, Jayne Mansfield. Like I said, it's not high art.
