Newspaper photograph of Jayne Mansfield’s use of wardrobe malfunction as a publicity stunt to upstage Sophia Loren at Romanoff’s in Beverly Hills. Picture taken by Joe Shere.

There’s so many to choose from of yesteryear so today we will give a little to one of the original Blonde Bombshells
of the silver screen by the name of Jayne Mansfield

Born (April 19, 1933 – June 29, 1967) was an American actress working both on Broadway and in Hollywood. One of the leading blonde sex symbols of the 1950s,[1] Mansfield starred in several popular Hollywood films that emphasized her platinum-blonde hair, hourglass figure and cleavage-revealing costumes.

While Mansfield’s film career was short-lived, she had several box office successes. She won the Theatre World Award, a Golden Globe and a Golden Laurel. As the demand for blonde bombshells declined in the 1960s, Mansfield was relegated to low-budget film melodramas and comedies, but remained a popular celebrity.

Because of the successful media blitz, Mansfield was a household name. Throughout her career, Mansfield was compared by the media to the reigning sex symbol of the period, Marilyn Monroe.[17] Of this comparison, she said, “I don’t know why you people [the press] like to compare me to Marilyn or that girl, what’s her name, Kim Novak. Cleavage, of course, helped me a lot to get where I am. I don’t know how they got there.”[18] Even with her film roles drying up she was widely considered to be Monroe’s primary rival in a crowded field of contenders that included Mamie Van Doren (whom Mansfield considered her professional nemesis), Diana Dors, Cleo Moore, Barbara Nichols, Joi Lansing, and Sheree North.

In her later career she continued to attract large crowds in foreign countries and in lucrative and successful nightclub tours. Mansfield had been a Playboy Playmate of the Month and appeared in the magazine several additional times. She died in an automobile accident at age 34.

That Jayne Mansfield was some looker wasn’t she? The way she died was the worst because supposedly in the car accident that killed her rumor has it she was decapitated. She married several times had several children one of which is Mariska Hargitay (born January 23, 1964), an actress best known for her role as Olivia Benson in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, she is the bomb too on the show guess the apple does’nt fall to far from the tree.

    This is a nice little biopic of Jayne Mansfield. The only things I knew about her were the cleavage and the car crash (wasn’t James Dean decapitated in his car crash too?).

    Mariska Hargitay is her daughter? Wow.
