Picture Trivia
          Jayne Mansfield (real name Vera Jayne Palmer, 1933-1967) was the first female lead actress that appeared totally naked in a Hollywood mainstream film –  Promises! Promises! (1963). After her portrayal in the film, Mansfield was chosen to replace the then recently deceased Marilyn Monroe in Kiss Me Stupid (1964), a romantic-comedy, opposite Dean Martin. She declined because she was pregnant at the time. The role went to Kim Novak. In 1966, she did the film Single Room Furnished under the direction of her third husband Matt Cimber (real name Thomas Vitale Octaviano).
          Do you know where she get’s the name “Mansfield?” It’s from her first husband Paul Mansfield.
