B&W Colorization of the day

The working man's Marilyn Monroe

While most know Jayne Mansfield as one of the first Playboy Playmates, few realize that she was more than her looks. Mansfield was a Golden Globe winner, classically trained pianist and violinist, mother of 5 (including actress Mariska Hargitay), and reportedly had an IQ over 160.
