Jayne Mansfield left an undying legacy as the punk Marilyn Monroe, with such films as The Girl Can’t Help ItPrimitive Love, and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter. A true sex kitten of the atomic era, her life and career was met with much adoration and fanfare.

But her death was shrouded in mystery. After a violent car crash took her life, the news led to rumors and hearsay that continue to this day. A new documentary recounts those rumors and hearsay, particularly her relationship with Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey. In Mansfield 66/67, classic documentary interviews and archival materials paint a picture of the last two years of her life.

The doc premieres October 27 in the US. Watch the trailer below.
