MICKEY HARGITAY(1926-2006), born Miklos Hargitay in Budapest, Hungary, became a bodybuilder and won the Mr. Universe title in 1955. He then joined Mae West's stage show, where he was seen by actress JAYNE MANSFIELD (1933-1967). Despite West's efforts to break up the couple, they were married in January 1958. The couple made several films together, including Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1958), The Loves of Hercules (1960, with Hargitay in the title role) and Promises! Promises! (1963).With this love letter, Hargitay was trying to win Mansfield back. Jayne's marriage to Hargitay, her second, lasted from 1958 to 1964, resulting in 3 children. One month after her divorce from Hargitay became final (August 1964), she remarried Matt Cimber, and had another child (her fifth). By the date of this letter, Mansfield's third marriage was on the rocks; she would divorce Cimber in July 1966. Hargitay's assurance that he still loved her "with all your kids forever" would have been important to Jayne. In August 1967, Mansfield died in a car accident en route to a nightclub appearance. In September 1967, Hargitay sued his wife's estate for $275,000 in child support. The couple had three children: two sons and a daughter. Their daughter, Mariska Hargitay (whom actor Nelson Sardelli claimed to have fathered), became an actress. Mickey appeared on her successful TV series, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, in 2003. Tear on bottom margin. Normal mailing folds. Crease along middle of page.
