A musical dance/art film documentary about the last two years of Jayne Mansfield's life, Mansfield 66/67 explores the legend of a uniquely enduring mega-watt star and the myth of her death being caused by a curse. In 1966, Jayne was 33 and she lived in a Pink Palace. Ahead of her time and refusing to play by society's rules, this astounding and amazing bombshell embarks on a wild and ultimately tragic psychedelic adventure with lawyer/boyfriend Sam Brody in tow, desperately trying to redefine herself and what a woman of her era could be. Mansfield 66/67 is co-directed by filmmakers P. David Ebersole (Hit So Hard, Straight Right) & Todd Hughes (Incense and Peppermints, Reflection of Evil, The New Women). This first premiered at the Rotterdam Film Festival last year, and played at numerous other film festivals throughout 2017. It's already available on VOD in the US. Mansfield 66/67 will be released in the UK starting on May 11th next month. For more release info, visit the film's official site. Anyone interested?
