The White House or Bust: Jayne Mansfield for President, 1964

Did you know that Jayne Mansfield was the most publicized woman in the world for a period in the late 1950s? In 1964, Jayne Mansfield’s spoof on the Presidential Election. Following the release of Jayne Mansfield For President, many people honestly thought that Jayne was serious running for office!


And here’s an amusing passage in the introduction:
All right, now look down the portrait gallery of the American Presidency. What do you see there? Beards, side-whiskers, bald heads, scowls. What’s missing? I’ll tell you what’s missing, buster—a cupid’s bow smile, a false eyelash wink, a nifty cleavage. If a farmer, a clerk, a general, a Southerner can make it to the White House, why not a lady…better yet a WOMAN! 
We have a stand-out candidate in mind, and we want to show you what would happen when she rolls up her sleeves throws out her chest and takes charge of the political scene.
