Artists And Models

Frank Tashlin
USA 1955
109 min

Unprofitable art - practiced by Painter Rick (Martin) and children's book author Eugene (Lewis) - competes against inartistic profit: colorful comic books, mass-produced, lucrative corrupter of the youth; this film brings up this topic with a wayward teen as well with a star-occupied TV-panel. This main part of the story confuses increasingly with more and more madcap plotlines. A terrific comic tangle, that opens in the end a candy-colored ball of "Artists and Models" and resolves to a happy end.
