Jayne Mansfield (April 19, 1933 — June 29, 1967) was a buxom American actress who had a career on stage & screen. In addition to singing in English and German in a number of films, in 1964, Mansfield released a novelty album called Jayne Mansfield: Shakespeare, Tchaikovsky & Me, on which she recited Shakespeare's sonnets and poems by Marlowe, Browning, Wordsworth, and others against a background of Tchaikovsky's music. The album cover depicted a bouffant-coiffed Mansfield with lips pursed and breasts barely covered by a fur stole, posing between busts of the Russian composer and the Bard of Avon. The New York Times described the album as the actress reading "30-odd poems in a husky, urban, baby voice". The paper's reviewer went on to state that "Miss Mansfield is a lady with apparent charms, but reading poetry is not one of them." Jimi Hendrix played bass and lead guitar for Mansfield in 1965 on two songs, "As The Clouds Drift By" and "Suey", released together on two sides.

According to Hendrix historian Steven Roby (Black Gold: The Lost Archives Of Jimi Hendrix, Billboard Books) this collaboration happened because they shared the same manager. By the late 1950s, Mansfield began to generate a great deal of negative publicity due to her repeated successful attempts to crash events, and expose her breasts in carefully staged public "accidents". Her bosom was so much a part of her public persona that talk-show host Jack Paar once welcomed the actress to The Tonight Show by saying, "Here they are, Jayne Mansfield" As a blonde bombshell in the 1950s she was a Playmate of the Month in Playboy of February 1955 and appeared in numerous films of ever declining quality that emphasized her hourglass figure and showcased her cleavage via sexy revealing costumes. Mansfield was married three times, divorced twice, and had five children. She reportedly also had affairs and sexual encounters with numerous individuals, including actors, millionaires, writers, singers, restaurateurs, and politicians including Robert F.

Kennedy and John F Kennedy. She died in a car crash near Biloxi Mississippi after making a personal night club appearance. After her death her Hollywood home known as the Pink Palace was sold was sold and its subsequent owners have included musicians Ringo Starr, Cass Elliot, and Engelbert Humperdinck Read more on Last.fm.
