I remember asking Marilyn one afternoon, “How do you feel about Jayne Mansfield going to work at your studio, at Fox?” Now, I may sound like I’m always protecting Marilyn, but in reality, I promise you that I’m simply telling it all exactly as it originally happened; there was no trace of anger in Marilyn’s soft-spoken response, she simply said in a low-key, matter-of-fact way, “I just wish that she’d realize that there is room for everyone.” And Marilyn was saying this about a woman who was openly trying to walk away with her image, so to speak, trying at all times to be her. I found it very interesting that Marilyn’s reaction to the certain prospect of Jayne Mansfield’s coming presence on the sound stages of Fox. And I admired her for it, too. Besides, in the coming months, Marilyn had bigger fish to fry, indeed!
