In 1957, Golden Globe winner Jayne Mansfield would become one of the most iconic blond bombshells of the 20Th Century. She possessed an IQ of 163, played violin and piano at a concert level, had a degree in Science, spoke 5 languages fluently, and yet became a celebrity by portraying a 'dumb blond.' By the age of 23 she became the most publicized Hollywood star in the world, but her success was short lived. Five children, three ex-husbands, countless love affairs, and addictions to diet pills and booze took its toll on Mansfield, and in 1967 a grisly car accident ended her life. This film features many of Jayne Mansfield's personal items, and focuses on the turbulent final years of the troubled star's career.Written by

The tragic story of Jayne Mansfield's life
This independent low budget film is an interesting and touching tells of Jayne Mansfield's life, the voluptuous bombshell that tragically died too young. It shows the typical cope mechanism of some Hollywood stars of that era; alcoholism, pill taking, drugs and extra-marital affairs to alleviate the pressures of packed work schedule to make a living for the entire family. Very creative and entertaining. I enjoyed it very much.
