Wo ist der Geschäft?

Reasons to be cheerful, part three.

It's another sunny day (a bonus on a Bank Holiday weekend, when we inevitably expect rain).

I am off shopping with the gang.

And it's Jayne Mansfield's birthday!

Here she is singing - in German, for a change - Wo ist der Mann?:


Jayne Mansfield (19th April 1933 - 29th June 1967)


  1. Guest starring with Jayne in the Frederick's ad is Tina Louise, Ginger from Gilligan's Island, an icon of mine.

    1. I had to look her up, and not only found out that her acting debut came in 1952 in the Bette Davis musical show Two's Company, but that she was also a star of John Murray Anderson's Almanac revue alongside an unlikely combination of Harry Belafonte, Hermione Gingold and Polly Bergen...

      She's still alive, aged 80, and is still working. Remarkable. Jx
