It's not an intimate portrait of the woman, but a celebration of the sex-positive, taboo-breaking image she created for herself and the way she rocked American culture during a hugely transitional moment.
There's value in examining the myth of Mansfield and its impact, but here poor Jayne herself is lost.
Mansfield 66/67 seeks to channel the effervescent fizz of its subject with entertaining but haphazard results.
Overall it is a creative melting pot that didn't quite come together as a cohesive film for me but is an interesting story non-the-less.
Even with its messy structure and sometimes random flourishes, the film... echoes Mansfield's own self-deprecating sense of humour.
Mansfield 66/67 is unorthodox and sometimes subtly subversive when poking fun at the glamour we expect of 'the naughty'.
In focusing on this saga, P David Ebersole and Todd Hughes's documentary takes a sociological view of tacky stardom, sometimes using academic language, but more entertainingly just revelling in Hollywood absurdities.
A fun if slight look at one of the greatest stars of the 1950s.
The low-rent assemblage of onscreen "experts" doesn't exactly help either.
A missed opportunity.
Mansfield 66/67 remains an entertaining, sometimes through-provoking trawl through Hollywood folklore.
A camp delight of a documentary that relishes in a queer sensibility...
