The Jayne Mansfield Story
In her first starring role in a TV movie, Loni Anderson plays the '50s platinum-blonde sex symbol whose search for stardom and meteoric (if brief) career ended in an automobile accident when she was 36. One-time (undefeated) Mr. Universe-turned-actor Arnold Schwarzenegger made his TV starring debut as Mansfield's second husband, body-builder Mickey Hargitay. Third husband, movie producer Matt Cimber, went unmentioned as did other Hollywood figures, some of whom were fictionalized for the movie. Originally titled "Jayne Mansfield: A Symbol of the '50s," it was Emmy Award nominated for costume design, makeup and hairstyles.
