As you might remember I wrote about Neil Libberts exhibition a few months ago. Here are his memories of Jayne:
“She came up to Blackpool to turn on the illuminations in 1959 and at the same time there was a TUC conference, which I was covering. She came into the Imperial hotel with her Chihuahua, which is on her lap in the photo, and we asked her if she would mind coming over and sitting with the delegates and she was only too happy. The man on the left is Ted Hill from the boilermakers union, the man behind is Morgan Phillips, general secretary of the TUC and the man on the right is Bill Carron from the Amalgamated Engineering Union, so it’s rather a heavy bunch of political figures sitting with her. It was used on the front page of the Guardian the following day”.
A truly beautiful, rare video from Jayne’s party for baby Anthony. She is just glowing of happiness!
Unsigned script for the play The Rabbit Habit, which starred Mansfield. This 1965 play was one of her last stage performances and opened less than two years before she died.Script unsigned. 143 singled-sided pages, 8½x10¾, bound in 8¾x11¼ blank green cardboard covers. Copy of The Rabbit Habit by Rex Carlton. This three-act play was one of Mansfield’s last stage performances, and it opened less than two years before she died. It opened in Denver, Colorado on December 1, 1965 – after the birth of her fifth child and a year before her divorce from her third husband Matt Cimber in 1966 – and was directed by Cimber. According to the cast page, Mansfield was supposed to play Miko Marlowe; however, the name “Miko” has been crossed out and replaced with “Jill” by an unknown hand in blue ink on the cast page.
Jayne and sailors in Victoria, 1966.( I was there in 2008. Wonderful town!)
I just stumbled upon some great photos and article about Jayne’s last visit to Vancouver, Canada.
“Countless Hollywood stars have visited Vancouver over the years, but few have stirred as much excitement as Jayne Mansfield.
The Hollywood star was booked into The Cave nightclub in late October, 1966, and by the time she left Nov. 6 she had inspired a week’s worth of newspaper headlines.”
