Signed, vintage 8x10 photo of Mansfield waving upon her arrival at London airport
Photograph signed: "Jayne/Mansfield". Vintage b/w, 8x10. On verso is the original label dating the photo to 1957, and describing the scene as Mansfield's arrival in London for the British premier of Oh, What a Man. Mansfield (1933-1967, born Vera Jayne Palmer in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania) was an American actress and sex goddess of the 1950s and 1960s. She first gained critical acclaim for her classic performance as a Monroe-like movie starlet in the Broadway play Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? The role won her a contract at 20th Century-Fox. In 1963's Promises! 8Promises!, Mansfield became the first major actress to appear nude on-screen. Despite a number of good dramatic performances, she was forever typed as a parody of Marilyn Monroe, a stereotype that was probably aggravated by her appearance as Miss February 1955 in Playboy. Mansfield was only 34 when she was killed on the way to a club engagement in New Orleans. Curled at edges. Discoloration and slight silvering to emulsion, mild toning, a few surface marks, and scattered adhesive residue to image (slightly touching face and signature). Otherwise, fine condition.
