Fifty years after the sex icon's untimely death, Mansfield 66/67 carries out a delightfully absurd investigation into the relationship between Jayne Mansfield and Anton LeVay's Church of Satan.

Combining archival material, quirky song and dance performances, and interviews with queer cultural icons that include John Waters and Cheryl Dunye, husband directing team Ebersole and Hughes explore the final years of Mansfield's life a true story based on rumour and hearsay. Akin to a campy episode of Law and Order, becoming involved with Satanism seems like a promising solution for a fading Hollywood starlet who is struggling to remain relevant. At the very least, the subject matter makes for a really good story.

Mansfield, like many of us, clearly craved attention. But how far would you go to maintain your public persona?
