Hardcover in pebbled green faux leather covered boards with spine lettered in gilt. 4 1/2" x 7 1/4". 128 pp. With 32 page section of black and white phots, many quite revealing. Copyright page states second edition but first edition was the softcover version; the hardcover is virtually never seen. Fine, gilt lettering bright but pages embrowned as to be expected as this was essentially a paperback book bound in hardcovers. In the pictorial dust jacket, small chip along tyhe bottom edge. Laid in is a 4" x 5" black and white promotional glossy with facsimile autograph, showing a topless Jayne clad only in white panties (touch of discoloration bottom corner border). Co-"authored" by Mansfield and her then husband Mickey Hargitay, this celebrity "autobiography" was published as Mansfield film career, in severe decline for years, was re- ignited when she was persuaded to appear nude in the film "Promises! Promises!" (the first mainstream American actress to so appear) and Playboy Magazine published stills of her in their June, 1963 issue. Her remaining film career was mainly cameos and B-picture roles; she was killed in an automobile accident in 1967. Bookseller Inventory #
