Jayne Mansfield

Things ain't what they used to be. (In fact, they never was.)
The Profile (more than you really wanted to know) is

Jayne Mansfield, Sophia Loren

So you think that Paris and Britney invented sensationalism? Tabloid journalism? Headline hogging? No, no. It was invented a long time ago....

Here, in 1957 Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield are fine tuning it for future generations. Jayne knew how to upstage the best. Even Sophia is taken aback.

But they are both fine ladies when compared to some of today's sleaze leaders. History repeats and retreats into the past.

Jayne Mansfield died in a car crash, today in 1967. We will always remember her at 34. If she were alive today, you can bet she would still be making headlines at 74.

Here is an excellent website that gathers fan information about Jayne.

June 29 was a bad day for beauty in history. We also lost Rosemary Clooney in 2002, Katherine Hepburn in 2003, Lana Turner in 1995 and Elizabeth Barrett Browning in 1861. And you know, we miss them all.

And today in 1613 the Globe Theater burned down.
