Svelte Jayne Mansfield plays roulette in Las Vegas

Blonde and mesmerisingly voluptuous, Jayne Mansfield became a renowned sex kitten of both Hollywood and Italian-produced movies of the 1950s and 60s.

Married at sixteen to her high school sweetheart and becoming a mother at 17, she started out as a physics major, switching first to drama at the University of Texas and then later to UCLA.

After she and her husband parted company, she joined a Dallas stock broking company and headed to Hollywood.

Mansfield used her exceptional IQ (reportedly 163) to smartly break into movies via a series of incredibly publicity stunts and thus became a household name, even before appearing in a film. After bleaching her hair, she won a few beauty contests and did some TV work, before then making her screen debut in "Pete Kelly's Blues" with Peggy Lee.
