The real life Mickey Hargitay played Hercules in 1960 in The Loves of Hercules (aka Hercules vs the Hydra). Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays Hargitay in the movie, played Hercules 10 years later in Hercules in New York. See more »
The radio broadcaster at the end of the film announcing the death of Jayne Mansfield says, "Miss Mansfield was 36 years old". In fact, Jayne was 34 years old. See more »
Though not entirely accurate ( they don't even get her age right at the time of her death), the film does give the ESSENCE of Jayne. This is the film that helped introduce me to the Goddess that is Jayne. Loni only captures one particular image of Jayne ( she had many) but she IS good in that image. I wish they would have focused a little bit more on the personal aspects of Jayne's life. And they also speed from her days at 20th Century Fox to the downward spiral in her career within in a 5 minute time frame. Loni's portrayal of Jayne at hearing about Marilyn Monroe's death is brilliant though. The costumes and evening gowns are very good and really reminiscent of the real Jayne's style. There is something intriguing about the film....particularly if you are new to the world of the great Mansfield. A little trivia: the pink palace used in the film is not the REAL pink palace Jayne had lived in! Only a few exterior shots are the actual mansion property. The house in 1980 was a beige colour and the owner would not allow it to be re-painted.
