Jayne Mansfield

Bought this postcard recently, I think it's very funny.
You certainly can't accuse Jayne of not knowing what to do with what she had! That may be the most daring dress I've seen. And anything which can make Sophia Loren cast jealous glances askance is something else.


Mmm, I actually recall very little I've seen with either of the ladies. Any recommendations?

One of my (very) few claims to fame is that I once had a chocolate malt with Jayne Mansfield.


Of course, I was five years old at the time and I was a lot more interested in the malt than I was in yet another grownup.

Right. A while ago someone here said he had photographed Kate Bush nude. And now we have Jayne Mansfield's date. What's next? Cleopatra's secret lover?

Dunno, but I once slept in a bunk bed with Marilyn Monroe. But of course I was very young.

OK, I made that up, but I believe the others.

Great photo. The look on Sophia's face is priceless. I would love to know exactly what she was thinking, although I'm sure I could guess pretty close.

One things for sure, she wasn't thinking "are those real"?

Pat McGee said...

I should have said "another crazy grownup." She was wearing a mink coat. In Dallas. Outdoors. In July.

I don't remember who it was that said this. Marilyn Monroe was "romance". Jayne Mansfield was "sex".

Seeing that picture really makes the points.

I do remember what Johnny Carson said about her. (Reportedly it was the highest-paid one-liner at the time.)

"And here they are - Jayne Mansfield."

You doods are a hoot a minute! Went lookin' for that Carson clip. Nowhere to be found, darn it! Found <a href="http://thethoughtexperiment.wordpress.com/2010/02/28/valentine-vixen-miss-february-1955-jayne-mansfield/>this</a>, instead. Hope you don't mind that I share! lol! ;-)

@ Ross: "One things for sure, she wasn't thinking "are those real"?"

GOOD one! That instance is actually, um, uncovered in the above link!

Eolake Stobblehouse said...

Thanks for the link, seems interesting.

Indeed, the funny thing is that we all immediately think we know what somebody, like Sophia here, is thinking in a picture we're looking at. But the question is if most of that is not what we ourselves think?

Her boobs seem larger in the present pic than in the nudes in the article TCG linked to. But I guess they can change with age and so on, and probably lifting and padded bras can add a lot.

You're welcome; and, yes, it seemed to be. :-)

Exactly; all that...and those! ;-)

I don't believe any of those. It was probably just some drag queen. The kid was 5.

Eolake Stobblehouse said...

I think scepticism is all well and good, but maybe it can be taken too far. Jayne must have met thousands of people in her life. It's not all that far-fetched that a kid would remember, and years later one of the blogs he's reading happens to post a picture of her.

There's no shortness of famous people, many people have met some. I've met an actress who's famous in Denmark, and I've met writers Ray Bradbury and Frederik Pohl.

I doubt you were five years old when you met them. When you were five, would you have known or cared who Fred Pohl was? Or who Inga Rasmussen was?

Pat McGee said...

I was 5 years old at the time. But my Aunt, who recognized her, was 23 and was a movie buff. She talked movies with her for 15-20 minutes and also talked to the photographer. She told the story for several years after that. It took me a while to connect her story with my malt. I probably only remembered it because my aunt had told me just a few minutes before that I couldn't have one and this was the only time I had one with someone who wasn't family. So, Tommy, be as skeptical, but I really don't think it was a drag queen, not in 1955.

Sophia handle that with grace, jayne did that on purpose showing her boobs to everybody, that was very rude, if it was me and jayne put her boobs in my face, I would said bitch can you get out my face please go get a chair and please sit your slutty ass down, lol or 2 I would have the tightest dress on with my boobs pushed to god, lol and when jayne was with her husband or are at some event I would have went to there table and say hey jayne and pull out my boob and shook them in her mans and jayne face, lol jayne wouldnt like that at all if some woman did that to her, thats a fact, and if jayne wanted to fight about I would have kick her ass, because that was so rude and desrespectful jayne knows she did that on purpose, i give sophia the up most respect because she handle it well, even tho she got caught looking at her boobs, lol jayne wanted the men and women to look at her boobs for attention i was wondering why the hell she didnt sit down, i dont want to eat dinner and look up and see boobs in my face up close like that, lol but whatever r.i.p. Marilyn wannabee jayne, even marilyn wouldnt be that desrespectful and rude, but marilyn did sleep with married men so, never trust a big boob blonde with tight dresses on, never are you will be hurt, god bless bye everyone:-)
