Jayne Mansfield in Sweden 2

May 22nd 1967, only 1 month before Jayne tragically died, she was performing on Gröna Lund in Stockholm, Sweden. The below clip also features Josephine Baker (that by the way asked my dad out for a date – LOL!) and a few other famous artist like Alice Babs, Jan Malmsjö, Lars Lönndahl and opera diva Birgit Nilsson!

“The lady did not hit a note right in the songs she performed. Her way of being on stage was suggesting that she had a large Marilyn Monroe complex. The whole thing was distressing. Ok, that the audience laughed, but it was an opressed, embarrassed laughter. We felt sorry for Jayne.”

Björn Vinberg / Expressen

I guess he must have felt bad for that review ever since…
