Synopsis

‘(The) gossipy documentary Mansfield 66/67 is a rip-roaring good ride.’
-Vanity Fair

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

If you like your queer mondo kitsch with a touch of the satanic, this uproarious look at the surely-this-can’t-be-true life story of the final years of Hollywood starlet Jayne Mansfield won’t just tickle your fancy, it’ll sacrifice it on the altar of interpretive dance. She was the ‘king-sized’ Marilyn Monroe, he was the founder of the Church of Satan (with a flair for the preposterous); their affair was ripped from the pages of ‘Hollywood Babylon’ – and Kenneth Anger is on hand to confirm it. Featuring hilarious and insightful interviews with John Waters, Peaches Christ and Tippi Hedren, Mansfield 66/67 is a doco so drenched in camp that you may need to come up for air half way through.
