Jayne Mansfield, originally named Vera Jayne Palmer, graced the silver screen as a renowned actress, earning fame as a blonde bombshell during the 1950s and 1960s, often drawing comparisons to Marilyn Monroe.

Her notable roles included appearances in films such as “The Girl Can’t Help It,” “Promises! Promises!,” and “The Sheriff of a Fractured Jaw.” Additionally, she garnered attention as a Playboy Playmate.

Tragically, Jayne Mansfield’s life was cut short in 1967 at the age of 34, in a fatal car accident. At the time of the incident, her daughter Mariska, aged three, was also present but thankfully escaped unharmed. The accident claimed the lives of Jayne, her friend and lawyer Sam Brody, and their driver Ronnie Harrison.
