Disappointing book on actress Jayne Mansfield. Of the books 394 pages, only 96 were devoted to a biography while the remaining were the summaries of each and every film, play, and television appearance of Mansfield. The summaries were thankfully, not too long, and did include cast lists as well as additional info as to what was going on in Mansfield's life at the time, but I would have preferred a full-length biography with a basic filmography and other works at the end. The book did have more photographs than most books of this type and also provided information on Mansfield's competition in the industry (folks like Mamie Van Doren, Sheree North, Joi Lansing, and others). There was a need for closer attention to the editing as you had sentences like "Although Jayne complaint to May Mann about this... (p. 83) or ... "and Jayne's part is build around his...(p. 198). On page 19, the author indicates Jean Harlow died of Cerebral oedema when everything I've read about Harlow indicated kidney and renal failure. The author also cites Brian Donlevy's best known films as being The Quartermass Experiment and Quartermass 2 when anyone who knows Donlevy remember him for Beau Geste. Finally, the author was so enamoured of his topic that you felt that she did not give a terrible performance in her life and it left you wanting a more realistic look at Mansfield's contribution to film. The book was okay but I was disappointed as I was expecting more of a biography.
