Every of Jayne’s fans remember this pretty blonde girl who was born at Vera Jayne Palmer in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, United States in April 19, 1933. Jayne had become one of the leading blonde sex symbols in the 50s ever since she becomes an actress in Hollywood, she was then become Playboy Playmate of the Month, and won a several award in her life time.
Before the accident happen, Jayne Mansfield lived in a great house at Sunset Boulevard, in Beverly Hills Los Angeles. The house had been demolished back in year 2002 by Englebert Humperdinck (a British-American music singer) who stays in since 1976.
On a nice evening of 28 June, 1967, it was Jayne Mansfield last show in her life. The people who saw one of the two performances of Jayne Mansfield at Gus Stevens Supper Club in Biloxi, Mississippi, will probably always recall the evening with mixed emotions. The two shows were at 9 and 11pm. According to Gus Stevens’s menu in the 60s, a set of Beef Tenderloin Shish Kebob was just selling at $3.25.
Jayne Mansfield, her attorney Sam Brody, the driver Ronnie Harrison, along with 3 of her children (Miklós, Zoltán, and Mariska) went on their way to New Orleans for Jayne’s next day television show. 6 of them went on with a 1966 Buick Electra 225 that own by Gus Steven and the driver Ronnie was just 20 years old during the time.
On their route to New Orleans, they made a stop at Rupert and O’Neal’s’ home which lived nearby Biloxi to have a late dinner. It was recorded that the last photographs of Jayne Mansfield were shot at the house. After the dinner, they continue the journey in the early morning on June 29, 1967. Here they passed through a waterwall called Rigolets, then they passed over a bridge known as the Old Spanish Trail area and came on to a narrow country road near to Louisiana swap, the U.S. Highway 90 around 2:25am. Guess what? Here is where the car crashed and the tragic car accident happened. The car crash into the rear of a tractor trailer that slow down due to a truck that was spraying mosquito fogger, thus it makes the accident very foggy. The tractor size are much higher than the Buick Electra that Jayne’s ride on, this makes the car struck at the rear of the tractor and under rode it. Three adults, Jayne Mansfield, Sam Brody, and Ronnie Harrison that sit at the front seats killed instantly. The 3 children riding in the rear of the car luckily survived with minor injuries.
