Here are Jayne Mansfield and her second husband, Mickey Hargitay, in 1958. In addition to being 1955’s Mr. Universe, Miklós "Mickey" Hargitay was also an actor. During the course of his marriage to Jayne Mansfield, the couple made four movies together: Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957), The Loves of Hercules (1960), Promises! Promises! (1963), and L'Amore Primitivo (1964). Mansfield was one of the early Playboy Playmates and a major Hollywood sex symbol of the 1950s and early 1960s. As an actress, she had several box-office successes and won a Theatre World Award and a Golden Globe. She died tragically at only 34-years old after a horrible car accident in 1967.
