Vietnam Jayne & Her “Virile Young Men”: While serving in the Central Highlands of Vietnam in 1966, U.S. Army soldier Bob Kholos interviewed Hollywood siren Jayne Mansfield when the USO came to town. Some highlights from their Q&A:
B.K.: “Miss Mansfield, what made you decide to come to Vietnam.?”
J.M. : “I was voted as one of the three most desired people, by the troops, that they wanted in Vietnam, and I was planning to come before that. But since my son had this terrible accident, being bitten and clawed by a Lion, and he almost lost his life, I had to delay my tour, but just before his accident I visited Walter Reed Hospital in Washington. I saw the ward where the boys just got back(sigh) and they were severely injured, still living and I just felt I wanted to give of myself as much as I could.”
B.K.: “Do you have a message that you would like to deliver to the soldiers serving in Vietnam?”
J.M.: “I would just like to say that I am very proud of them, as every other American, and I think they are doing a fabulous, fabulous job,beautiful. Their working hard, very dedicated and just continue thinking positively and everything will come out fine. It’s positive thinking and alertness, that’s been my philosophy of life.
About those virile men:
B.K.: “Was your routine today as strenuous as your regular movie routine?”
J.M.: “Yes, it was. It was more fun in that I was able to greet and speak and take pictures with a lot of very handsome young men, and very exciting virile young men, which is more fun really than doing anything else. But, the strain of being in an area, as we are, where we don’t know where the enemy is, and what’s going to happen any moment, as you know, and as we all know here, you all know much more than I do because you’ve been here for awhile, but it is very strenuous on the mind, yes.
B.K. : “Is there any one particular thing that stands out in your mind about Vietnam?’
J.M. : “It’s a beautiful country, a very beautiful country. The mountains are high, and the farmers till their soil very well. The people, I have not come in contact with any Northern Vietnamese, Viet Cong either, so far.
But, I think of people I have met, the Vietnam people are just great, warm people. It’s just a shame that we couldn’t be here on vacation with a big swimming pool. Today, I was down at the Church and the weather was so beautiful, I said it would be a great place for a vacation, under the right circumstances. (B.K.: “Yes, that area is the Second Brigade, forward area.)
B.K. : “Finally, may I have your opinion on mini skirts?”
J.M. : “Oh, yah, I dig them. I think their wild, I think their cool, and I think men should wear mini pants. (Giggle).
One year later, an infamous car crash would take Mansfield’s life, though it did not take her head as pop-cult folklore would have it. She was grievously injured but not actually decapitated in the tragic accident.
