18.00 = CINEMA CAFE OPENS
19:00 = Filmed performaces of mid-60s Danish pop ("pigtråd) bands that include The Sharks, The Hitmakers, The Defenders and Peter Belli and Les Rivals (15 min total)...
19:15 = THE GIRL CAN´T HELP IT, (on 35mm!), 1956, 100 min., directed by Frank Tashlin / This essential '50s rock film contains legendary appearances from Fats Domino, the Platters, Little Richard and Gene Vincent among its seventeen numbers, though the greatest musical moment is perhaps Eddie Cochran belting out '20 Flight Rock'. The film is a clever satire on the promotional worlds of early rock & roll and advertising, with Tom Ewell as a press agent and Jayne Mansfield playing a dumb blonde who rockets to stardom after imitating a prison siren on a rock record. Full of sight gags, humor and a beautiful technicolor scenes, THE GIRL CAN´T HELP is one of the first great Rock films and is a vastly enjoyable experience, especially on the 35mm print we are screening! All together an amazing evening!
