Visitor Tabs

Description

This is a Tyne Tees Television interview with Hollywood actress Jayne Mansfield in Newcastle, originally broadcast on 31 March 1967. Ms Mansfield is in the region performing cabaret in both Newcastle and South Shields. She responds to a negative news report in the Daily Mirror about her show and talks about what she thinks of the people of the north east. Report by Bob Langley.

The report opens on a street in Newcastle showing Jayne Mansfield, with a large ribbon in her hair. She is asked about the attack on her in that morning’s edition of the Daily Mirror about her north east tour. She expected the article from a certain columnist who had visited her act would be a hatchet job. She has been performing to sell out audiences and has been treated very warmly. However, it is cold on the street where she is being interviewed, and she hopes to be kept warm by ‘those gorgeous sailors’. She continues by saying that people have been very complimentary and warm, and she loves them all.
