B Movie Actresses List

B Movie Actresses List Biography
One of the leading sex symbols of the 1950's 1960's and movie and B movie actress, Jayne Mansfield was born in Pennsylvania on Wednesday, 19 April 1933 and as a child she was a talented pianist and violin player. She moved to Dallas, Texas, after the death of her father at age 3 and the family bought a little home where she had violin concerts in the driveway of their home. Amazingly her IQ was reported to be a 163 and she attended the University of Dallas and participated in little-theatre productions. In 1949 at age 16 she married a man 8 years her senior named Paul Mansfield the next year when Jayne Mansfield was 17 the two had a child named Jayne Marie Mansfield. She landed a small but sexy role in Pete Kelly's Blues (1955), which led to roles that were more prominent in several ways also when she started her movie career she played in movies with popular actors and actresses to help kick start her movie career. A job in the Broadway production of "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" brought her a good deal of attention for her scantily clad appearance, and she repeated the role in the film version with CoStar Tony Randall (A actor who would later on CoStar in a movie with Marilyn Monroe in 1960 called "Let's Make Love"). Her high-pitched squeal of delight and the studied ease with which she flaunted her more than obvious pulchritude led to a succession of roles as sex kittens and dumb blonde bombshells. She occasionally appeared in films of some quality, but though she apparently aspired to respectability as an actress, her public persona was too extreme to be taken seriously, and she became a sort of poor man's 'Marilyn Monroe' or as the backup or second star for Marilyn Monroe, without the vulnerability and ability that Monroe possessed also the popular movie studios did not think she was that much of a dumb blonde because she knew her movies lines easily. In the early 1960's she began affairs with many famous individuals like 35th President JFK and his younger brother RFK. By the 1960s Mansfield's career had options that grew lower. She made somewhat embarrassing guest appearances like on the 1950's popular game show "What's My Line?" she appeared on the show 4 times 1956, 1957, 1964, and 1966 and many other 1950's and 1960's game shows also by 1962 she was dropped from 20th Century Fox and the rest of her career had smaller options like being in B movies and low budget movies or performing at food stores or small nightclubs. While traveling from a nightclub in Biloxi, Mississippi and 30 miles from New Orleans to where she was to be on television the following day was killed instantly on Highway 90 in a car crash in the early hours of Thurday 29 June 1967, when the car in which she was riding in slammed into the back of a semi-tractor trailer truck that had stopped due to a truck in front the tractor trailer was spraying for bugs and the car which she was riding in went under the truck at nearly 80 miles per hour along with boyfriend Samuel Brody and their driver Ronnie Harrison she was only 34 years old at the time. The damage to the car was so bad that the engine was twisted side ways. Rumors began that Mansfield was decapitated began when the photographers and police found her platinum blonde wig on the dashboard of the car and they saw that and just took of with that which is highly untrue as her first child Jayne Marie Mansfield claims and it was a false report. Mansfield's funeral was on July 3, 1967 which was a small ceremony which her family, first child, and second husband Mickey Hargitay attended the same place in Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania where her father was buried. Today Jayne Mansfield's fame lives on in the success of her best movies, her documentary film appearances, her 22 television show appearances, and in the career of her 4th child actress Mariska Hargitay who plays on a popular NBC and NYC crime show Law & Order SVU her role is Olivia Benson.
