1964 New York World’s Fair memory: Meeting a sex symbol

jayne-mansfield-mickey-hargitay-1964-new-york-world-fair

Gus Vaccaro kisses his bride Mary Lou at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Jayne Mansfield was the bridesmaid and Mickey Hargitay the bestman.

Meeting a sex symbol

I was 18. My first job at the fair was at the Transportation and Travel Pavilion, where I saw many actors and other famous people, such as the shah of Iran, Eddie Albert and Dagmar.

The most memorable moment came when I was picked to escort Jayne Mansfield to do a photo shoot on the roof of a pavilion shaped like the moon, a greenish-colored dome with craters on it. She was holding two small dogs as she was walking. What does an 18-year-old say to a sex goddess? The only thing that came to mind was, “What kind of dogs are they?” She answered, “Italian greyhounds.”

Mickey Hargitay will always be fondly remembered by all Jayne-fans as her most devoted husband. He never stopped loving her. But there was so much more to him than just being “the 2nd Mr. Mansfield”. Mickey Hargitay had quite an interesting life.
