Synopsis

Jayne Mansfield was the punk Marilyn Monroe and the ultimate atomic-era sex-positive kitten-gone-berserk. Defined by her hunger for publicity, she was impossible to categorize, though the headlines her life inspired certainly tried: "Can a Sex Siren be a Good Mother?," "Love Goddess With a Jinx," "The Smartest Dumb Blonde." This "true story" based on rumor and hearsay, where classic documentary interviews and archival materials are blended with dance numbers, performance art and animation, elevating a tabloid tale of a fallen Hollywood idol into a celebration of the mythical proportions of a true original.
