Laura; I thought she was so lovely —but in those days, everyone tried to imitate Marilyn; there will never be anyone as amazing as Marilyn Monroe, and poor Jayne died a horrible death.
I think Jayne was pushed pretty hard to compete with Marilyn by the studios she worked for. You’re so right about there being only one Marilyn. While I was looking for just the right image, I read a lot about the accident. I had no idea all three of her children were in the car and survived. Was (slightly) relieved to hear that Mansfield was not actually decapitated. The photos I ran across were very distressing.
