E! Mysteries & Scandals: The Jayne Mansfield Story (1998)
Hugh Hefner, Ray Strait (publicist), Charles Champlin (film historian), Sabin Gray (fan club manager), Ann Wedgeworth (childhood friend), Jim Haspiel (friend) and Mamie Van Doren are interviewed in this episode that takes a look at the quick rise and tragic death of Jayne Mansfield.
We start off talking about her desire to head into Hollywood where she had big dreams that she reached but she didn't stay there long. We then hear about her downfall, which included agreeing to appear nude in a film, which was a controversial move at the time and we also learn about her final show, which resulted in her death hours later. If you're a fan of Mansfield then you'll enjoy this episode, which does a very good job at explaining what Mansfield was up to in her final years as well as explaining why things fell apart so quickly. We also get an interview with her son who was in the car the night his mother died.
