Interviewed by Linda Marric
We speak to P. David Ebersole and Todd Hughes, the married couple behind the intriguing new documentary about Hollywood camp legend Jayne Mansfield.
One of the most talked about stars of the classical Hollywood era, Mansfield was at one time as famous and as sought after as Marilyn Monroe. Regarded by many as one of the most recognisable sex symbols of the studio era, Mansfield had it all, fame, money and a solid Twentieth Century Fox contract, but it was her dealings with infamous Church Of Satan leader Anton LaVey and her consequent violent death in a car accident which has turned the former starlet into the stuff of legend. In their film Mansfield 66/67, directors P. David Ebersole and Todd Hughes attempt to get behind the legend and the legacy she left behind.
