“Girl Talk” is a popular song composed by Neal Hefti, with lyrics written by Bobby Troup. It was written for the 1965 film “Harlow,” a biographical film about Jean Harlow, starring Carroll Baker.

The Color-Sonics film jukebox debuted in mid-1966, with films made by Official Films at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. The Color-Sonics film jukebox used 8mm magnetic-sound film cartridges. Color-Sonics also made 16mm prints of at least some of its films so that they could be shown on a Scopitone jukebox. The 16mm prints have often faded miserably over the years.
