Jayne Mansfield (subject)

N.p. N.p., 1957-1958. Archive of four vintage photo negatives of actress Jayne Mansfield. One negative with the year "1957" in manuscript ink annotation on the margin of the sleeve, along with the name of the film "The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw," a Western film in which Mansfield starred.

From the archive of film historian and author Joel Finler.

One negative shows Mansfield holding her infant son Miklós Jeffrey Palmer Hargitay, the eldest of three children Mansfield would have with her second husband, Mickey Hargitay. Another negative shows Mansfield seemingly naked under a fur-lined white blanket. The other two negatives show Mansfield in a costume from "The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw," sporting a black corset top and bikini bottoms with a pink feather headpiece and flounced bustle.

Three negatives measuring 1 x 1.5 inches, and one negative measuring 3.5 x 4.5 inches. Very Good plus. Housed in a small, contemporary Very Good plus brown paper envelope.
