Jayne Mansfield (April 19, 1933 – June 29, 1967) was an American
actress working both on Broadway and in Hollywood. One of the
leading blonde sex symbols of the 1950s, Mansfield was a Playboy
Playmate of the Month, and appeared in the magazine several more
times over the years. She won the Theatre World Award, Golden
Globe and Golden Laurel. Mansfield starred in several popular
Hollywood films that emphasized her platinum-blonde hair,
hourglass figure and cleavage-revealing costumes.
While Mansfield's film career
was short-lived, she had several box office successes. As the
demand for blonde bombshells declined in the 1960s, Mansfield
was relegated to low-budget melodramas and comedies, but
remained a popular celebrity. In her later career she continued
to attract large crowds in foreign countries, and in lucrative
and successful nightclub tours. Mansfield died in an automobile
accident at the age of 34.
