Jayne Mansfield's death has become legendary over the years, sparking stories of decapitation and horror that were not entirely true, but have survived in history as greatly as the sexy images she posed for in life. The offered original photograph is among the most powerful from the tragedy, showing the wrecked car as well as the lifeless body of the actress covered by a white blanket. An important photograph and this is one of the only originals from 1967 we have seen in any form!
