Jayne Mansfield: Sex Symbol

Updated on April 6, 2015

Jayne Mansfield (1933-1967) - Oh What a Woman!

Jayne Mansfield, was a sex symbol. She pushed the limits. Often overshadowed by Marilyn Monroe, Jayne broke boundaries. Though her life was cut short, Jayne Mansfield lived life more then most. She suffered tragedy, and conquered the hearts of millions. She was fearless, seductive, and dedicated.

The first time I ever heard of Jayne Mansfield, I was standing directly in front of her grave (long story). My father told me about how he remembered seeing her once when he was a teenager. He told me about how everyone in town made an effort to see Jayne Mansfield that day. Atop the grave were three coins from somewhere far away - in a language we couldn't even even recognize, with a bouquet of fresh flowers. This all piqued my interest, and I had to know more about Jayne. I'm so glad I was introduced to the memory of such an amazing woman.

Biography: Part I

Source

Mansfield, born Vera-Jayne Palmer, was born April 19, 1933 in in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. As her father died when she was very young, she and her mother moved back to her mothers hometown, Pen Argyl, PA. They later moved to Dallas, TX.

Jayne attracted attention wherever she went. This attention led to the birth of her daughter Jayne-Marie at age 16, and early marriage of Jayne to a boy she was seeing, Paul Mansfield (not the father). They moved west.

Jayne was persistent in her pursuit of Paramount Studios, landing herself in The Female Jungle, after making herself a blonde. Through a series of sexy press stunts, she began to get public attention. Her husband, however, did not like the way things were going - he left.

Jayne landed three film's with Warner: Pete Kally's Blues, Hell On Frisco Bay, Illegal. Then, back to the sexy publicity stunts.

Here enters Hugh Hefner. Jayne was the centerfold in February of 1955, and appeared each February until 1963.

After finishing a few B-Movies, Jayne stared in the play "Rock Hunter", on Broadway. During this, the sexy publicity stunts continued. She never wanted the public to forget her.

Jayne's popularity was rising, to the point of having her choice of roles. But her commitment to the play became a problem. Twentieth Century Fox was so interested in her, they bought the rights to the play and closed it. They saw their opportunity to have another Marilyn Monroe, who was sometimes too much hassle.

Jayne moved back to California with Mickey Hargitay, a Hungarian body builder and Mr. Universe 1955, who she had met at a Mae West show. "The Girl Can't Help It" was the first of several Fox hits for Jayne. But, when Marilyn Monroe finalized her contract with them, Jayne was not their top priority any longer.

On January 13, 1958, Jayne and Mickey Hargitay finally wed in a grand ceremony. (They had had to wait for the divorce from Paul Mansfield to be finalized). A few months later, she was pregnant again - to the dismay of Fox. Her movie career, was becoming an foreign-made film fest.

"Promises, Promises", in 1963, included Jayne's first nude scene and the first by any major Hollywood star. The movie was banned in many cities.

Biography: Part II

Source

Jayne began a fling with singer Nelson Sardelli, and quickly (and publicly, got a Mexican divorce from Mickey. It was not long before she returned to Mickey, pregnant again. As the Mexican divorce was not believed to be legal, they did not remarry.

Jayne, in 1964, fell in love with Matt Cimber, director of the play she starred in, "BUS STOP". Again, she left Mickey, but did not get a divorce as now that Mexican divorce was believed to have been legal. The two got married in Mexico on September 24, 1964, and moved to New York. Jayne gives birth to her fifth child Antonio Raphael Ottaviano a.k.a Anthony Richard Cimber in October of 1965.

As work slowed, for Jayne, she began a romance with her custody and divorce lawyer, Sam Brody. Jayne's drinking accelerates, and she and Sam fought - often physically.

And the publicity stunts resurface. During one of these stunts, her son Zoltan (Mickey's son) was mauled by a lion, putting him in a coma and requiring emergency brain surgery. He was released by Christmas.

Jayne died tragically at age 34. A freak auto accident in the middle of the night in Lousianna took the the lives of Jayne Mansfield, Sam Brody, and Ronnie Harrison, and three dogs. Mariska, Zoltan, Mickey Jr, and two dogs survived.

A fight over her body and where she wanted to spend eternity ensued between the men of her life. A judge declared that that Mexican divorce was not legal, and by such neither was the later marriage to Matt Cimber. Mickey was the one to decide upon her resting place. He decided upon Pen Argyl, where her grandparents were. The National Guard came to hold back the crowd of nearly 10,000 people who came to see the celebrities that were expected to attend the funeral. A grand farewell!

Jayne never wanted to be forgotten, and she will not be forgotten. Jayne Mansfield has a beautiful heart shaped gravestone, which began a bold pink - bold as Jayne herself. Though it has faded over the years, it is clear from rows away that that is the stone of a woman who loved life, and lived it more then most women years older then she.

      She's a fascinating person. I had no idea Mariska Hargitay was her daughter! :O

      Look, one thing has had me scratching my head for the longest. I could have sworn that a documentary or article of some kind showed Ms Mansfield doing a publicity stunt in which she walked nude down...I suppose it was Hollywood Drive. She was surrounded by photographers in suits.

      I've since tried to find further information or a video clip or photo and can find NOTHING. Did I misunderstand something? Did this actually happen (How cool would that be!). Did I merely imagine this?

      Let me know if you've heard of this, Kab.

      Can someone please tell me how I can upload a Microsoft Word or JPEG attachment of a Xerox from the New York Times on microfilm from 45 years ago?

      It's an ad on the Times TV page indicating that Jayne Mansfield was scheduled to appear that night on a local New York TV talk show called "Hot Line" with host David Susskind, a 45 - year - old diplomat from India named Raja Ranbir Singh and two people connected to the Broadway theater. Most likely, all recordings of the telecast were destroyed, even the audio. It is very unlikely that a transcript exists.

      But as a Jayne Mansfield fan I would feel great if someone would display the Xerox somewhere. The Frank Ferruccio book doesn't discuss any of her TV talk appearances. I'm trying to find the correct email address for someone connected with this website so I can email the Microsoft Word attachment or JPEG. Then they can display it, right ? My name is Kathryn Fauble. Email is:

      kathrynfauble@yahoo.com

      Thanks for your time and attention. Bye for now.

      I remember the day Jayne Mansfield passed away like it was yesterday. My family was on vacation in Tenn. and we heard it on the radio. My Mother was in her late 30's at the time and was saddened by the loss. She was truly a great pin-up icon and one of the few of the century.

      Jayne Mansfield's agent passed away last December and I acquired several boxes of his clients' memorabilia. All of JM's photos and letters were given to her youngest son. I've always admired her, and am sorry she did not live to raise her children. Sophia Loren's expression is priceless! Squid Angel Blessed.

      I have two hands and eight legs but always remember David Niven describing her as Miss United Dairies. Never knew that Mariska Hargitay was her daughter. My wife and I love watching that program. Great lens.

      Wow, this is a really put together lens on Jayne Mansfield. I'm not sure who I rather have, Mansfield or Monroe! I wonder if pheromones would have done the trick. Thank for sharing.

      What a "telling"picture. She seems to say "How come she has bigger ones than I have?"

      This was a story told back in the days of Jaynes reign. Jayne was a curious creature. She wanted to know everything. She delved into religions and black magic. When Zoltan was mauled by the lion, he wasn't supposed to live. Jayne sat by his bed day and night whle Zolton lay in his Coma. One night Jayne left the bedside for a few hours. When she returned Zoltan opened his eyes. Each day he grew stronger. The rumour started that Jayne sold her soul to the devil as a trade for Zoltans recovery. The night she died, the devil collected on the trade. Always found the story interesting.

      DEAR READERS-

      WELL PUT TOGETHER WEB PAGE. I'D LIKE TO ADD SOMETHING, SHE WAS MADE A STAR BY HOLLYWOOD, TELVISION, AND SCREAM ACTOR BURNO VESOTA.

      MR. VESOTA MADE HER A STAR IN THE PICTURE "FEMALE JUNGLE." HE DIRECTED THE FILM AND WROTE IT. SHE ALSO WAS IN HIS LAST PICTURE, SINGLE ROOM WITH MR. VESOTA AS "MR. QUAKE QUAKE.

      HE WENT ON TO BE IN PICTURES SUCH AS 'BUCKET OF BLOOD,' 'THE WILD ROVERS, AND TV SHOWS 'TAKES A THEIF' AND KOJAK. A LITTLE ADDED FOOD FOR THOUGHT.

      WITH RESPECT,

      ROBERT JONES
