  • Rachel-
    During the Summer of 1953, Jayne Mansfield actually lived next door to us on Canterbury Court.
    She stayed with her In Laws, Ruth and Norman Mansfield, while husband Paul Mansfield was on active duty. We did not have a television in those days and I often went to the Mansfield’s house to watch shows. It was then as a teenager that I noticed Jayne and it was the next Summer that she lost her top in a Hollywood swimming pool and immediately became a big star!
