Jayne Mansfield's career had taken a nosedive by the time she died at age 34. Her notoriety reached its peak in 1963 when she starred in Promises! Promises!, in which she appeared nude. The film was banned in some areas, but enjoyed box office success where it was shown. Once a highly sought-after actor, by the early 1960s the blonde bombshell had resorted to tacky roles that traded heavily on her sex appeal. But she gave an honest, clear-eyed performance in what would prove to be her last movie, Single Room Furnished, released in 1968 after her death. In the film, she portrays a woman who turns to prostitution after her husband and later her fiancé both desert her. Mansfield was killed on June 29, 1967, when the car she and three of her children were riding in crashed into a tractor-trailer. The children survived with minor injuries.
