Jayne Mansfield

Here is a famous song performed by the delicious and extravagant Jayne Mansfield.
Jayne Mansfield (born Vera Jayne Palmer in 1933, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania) was an American actress and sex symbol. Famed for her platinum-blond hair and voluptuous figure, she emerged during the 1950's appetite for glamorous sex symbols led by Marilyn Monroe. In February 1955, Mansfield was the Playmate of the Month in Playboy, for which she would pose several more times over the ensuing years. In April of 1957, Jayne pulled off one of the most notorious publicity acts in history by upstaging Sophia Loren during a party in Loren's honor. Mansfield, having already upstaged Jane Russell at a premiere party by coming out of a swimming pool topless a few years earlier, pulled off a similar stunt with Sophia Loren by literally pulling out her breasts at the table Loren was seated at. Russ Meyer said that Jayne's reputation for being large breasted was a false one and that it was due mainly to her large ribcage and tireless attention getting schemes that had the press continually fixated on her chest. Mansfield was unable to upstage Anita Ekberg who had the largest natural breasts in Hollywood history. It is said that upon seeing Anita Ekberg in person Jayne got back into her car and drove away! Mansfield won a Golden Globe in 1957 for Most Promising Newcomer - Female, beating out Carroll Baker and Natalie Wood. Although her flamboyant persona made her tough to cast, she was widely considered Marilyn Monroe's number one rival in a crowded field of contenders that included Mamie Van Doren, Diana Dors, and some others. Mansfield was also a singer and headlined in Las Vegas. In 1963 she released her now cult record "Shakespeare, Tchaikovsky and Me" in which she reads classical poetry with a background of Tchaikovsky's music. She died in a car accident in 1967, the cause and the circumstances of which remain unclear. Jayne Mansfield has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Enjoy Jayne's charming singing!
