Single Room Furnished (1968)
The way I see this movie is probably not the way it was intended to be taken. Jayne is crazy, shes in love... Jayne is crazy, shes heart broken... Jayne is crazy, shes a bitch... She just seems crazy from begining to end.
Its hard to say what the worst part of this movie is. Is it the absurdity of the dramatic story? Is it the stupid characters? Is it the awful Go-Go dancer scene? No it is got to be the acting. The acting is awful in this movie and the worst performance probably comes from Miss Mansfield. Just watch for the scene where she comes in from the rain soaking wet and sneezes. Its just amazing how awful she really is in this.
If you are looking for Jayne Mansfield sexy stuff you could probably skip right over this one. Sure she looks good in some of her outfits but it just doesn't make up for the lack of over all quality. What they should have done was cast Briggite Bardot in this movie for more sex appeal and much better acting.
