Jayne Mansfield

Eve Golden

University Press of Kentucky

In 1964, with no decent film offers, Jayne embarks on summer stock and dinner theater, starring in Bus Stop and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (both formerly Marilyn Monroe films). She falls in love with director Matt Cimber, which ends her marriage to Mickey Hargitay. Jayne and Matt marry on September 24, 1964. Jayne and Matt move to New York, abandoning the Pink Palace.In August 1964 Jayne meets the Beatles who (except for Ringo) are cruel and dismissive toward her. Jayne also promotes her delightfully silly Jayne Mansfield for President campaign ("The White House or Bust!").
