    Description

    Rare Photos of Jayne Mansfield Rescue at Sea. Set of eight rare, unpublished b&w 9" x 13" proof sheet photos of a shaken (but not stirred) Mansfield, husband Mickey Hargitay, and friend Jack Drury, shortly after being rescued at sea. The three had been forced to spend the night on a tiny island in the Bahamas after their boat capsized during a waterskiing outing, and were rescued the next day. From Drury's personal collection, the photos are in Fine to Very Fine condition with mild to heavy tearing, creasing and wear around the edges, and all have Life magazine studio stamps en verso.
