JAYNE MANSFIELD

Jane Mansfield was known for her over the top sexuality, and her monstrously gorgeous breasts. She certainly knew how to work it. After perusing through her old pin-up photos, she's practically bending over to pick up a piece of paper in every single one of them!  Sadly, her death, where she was nearly decapitated by slamming her convertible into the back of a truck is more famous than her life.  I remember a punk band in the 80s that was called Jane Mansfield's Head, and have heard of "I Brake For Jayne Mansfield's Head" bumper stickers, as well. The funny thing is, though she died from severe head trauma in the accident, she was never decapitated at all, as the whole thing is just a big urban legend.  (Read more about it here at SNOPES.com). Though her dreams of becoming an actress in the early 50s were quickly achieved, she was cast off as a 2nd rate Marilyn Monroe (perhaps deservedly), and relegated to roles that featured high pitched squealing, not much talent, and plenty of boob shots.  Though her impact as an actress is suspicious at best, she's clearly one of the first stars to rely on her tits to achieve fame.  She may have been a Marilyn Monroe copy, but she set the standard for the Pamela Andersons of the future to follow.
