Fox Archives: Happy 85th birthday, Jayne Mansfield


Today, April 19, 2018, would have marked Jayne Mansfield’s 85th birthday. Ms. Mansfield was a Fox contract player in the 1950s and 1960s, well known for her roles in such films as “The Girl Can’t Help It” (1956), “The Wayward Bus” (1957) and “Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?” (1957).

To help celebrate, here are a few rare photos from the Fox Archives Starhead Collection:

The Fox Archives is mandated to collect, catalog, preserve and make accessible the following assets of the 20th Century Fox studios: props, set decoration, photographs, art department and publicity materials from our film and television productions, and from the 20th Century Fox studio itself. We work primarily with internal Fox groups but also from time to time with outside organizations such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry.
