The feature documentary “Mansfield 66/67” focuses on the final 2 years of Jayne Mansfield’s life and the rumours surrounding her untimely death.
2017 marked the 50th anniversary of Jayne Mansfield’s fatal and legendary car crash, yet we still are left to wonder: was her life spinning out of control in the last two years of her life, or…did the devil make her do it?
Larra Anderson, LCC’s Dean of Screen School co-produced the film with long-time filmmaking partners P. David Ebersole and Todd Hughes (who co-directed the film), as well shooting all of the UK based footage.
Classic documentary interviews and archival materials are blended with experimental dance numbers, performance art and animation, elevating a tabloid tale of a fallen Hollywood idol into a celebration of the mythical proportions of a true original.
Here we catch up with Larra about the unconventional documentary…

London College of Communication is pleased to present Capital City, an exhibition and series of events that examines the relationship between money and property in London, and its effects on all our lives.
Students from the College’s Media School have collaborated with artists, campaigners and researchers. Work produced looks at the political and economic factors that affect London’s skyline, property market and housing stock.
The work addresses challenging and sometimes controversial topics such as estate regeneration, the influx into the London housing market of money from overseas sources, the effect on our lived environment of monumental glass towers and debates over gentrification. These are issues that have an impact on all of us across London, including here in Elephant & Castle, currently the site of multiple redevelopment projects including a proposed new building for London College of Communication.
