Plainfield, NJ, November 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Author Frank Ferruccio today announced the release of Did Success Spoil Jayne Mansfield, Her Life in Pictures and Text, with Damien Santrioni, published by Outskirts Press. The second book in film historian Ferruccio’s biographical series on Mansfield, this new volume brings Jayne’s fans more fascinating anecdotes and information about the actress’s life from stories the author has heard from her children and co-worker‘s.
A true Hollywood legend, actress Jayne Mansfield appeared in twenty-nine films, but she was also a musician and a comedienne. Her IQ was reported to have been 163. She was also the mother of five, including Mariska Hargitay, the star of the hit TV show Law and Order SVU.
It is because of Ferruccio’s close resources, her children and co-workers, that the author can now reveal so much about the famed sex symbol. The new biography covers her life from the birth of the Aries star through her early motherhood. He goes into her use by Fox, her love and marriage, and her life after the era of the Blonde Bombshells, Monroe and Mansfield, had finally ended.
Although candid in its recounting of Jayne’s indulgences, Did Success Spoil Jayne Mansfield? is also a fitting and fascinating tribute to the actress and the golden era of film which gave her fame. It is the perfect companion piece to Ferruccio’s first biography of the great actress, Diamonds to Dust, The Life and Death of Jayne Mansfield.
Did Success Spoil Jayne Mansfield? is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
