Movie Info

From the producers of ROOM 237, a super Hollywood Babylon-style documentary about the final years of movie goddess Jayne Mansfield's life and untimely death. Was that ill-fated car crash really caused by a curse after her alleged romantic dalliance with Anton LaVey, head of the Church of Satan? Packed with fabulous talking heads and dazzling clips from the Marilyn-in-Waiting's film career, this is a quintessential look at the 50s tabloid star as a precursor to the feminist advances of the 1960s, as a woman who tested the limits of then acceptable female behavior and as 'the first reality TV star'.

Critic Reviews for Mansfield 66/67

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (3)

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.

October 24, 2017 | Full Review…

Mansfield 66/67 seeks to channel the effervescent fizz of its subject with entertaining but haphazard results.

October 24, 2017 | Full Review…

Even with its messy structure and sometimes random flourishes, the film... echoes Mansfield's own self-deprecating sense of humour.

May 15, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Mansfield 66/67 is unorthodox and sometimes subtly subversive when poking fun at the glamour we expect of 'the naughty'.

May 15, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

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.
