Shakespeare, Tchaikovsky, and Jayne Mansfield

In 1964, Jayne Mansfield recorded an album for MGM that featured her reading selections from the poetry of Shakespeare, Byron, Shelley, Yeats, and others, as Tchaikovsky's music played in the background. Apparently she hoped the record would show off the asset she was most proud of, her 164 IQ.

The album isn't available on CD or MP3, but you can pick up a copy of the original vinyl on eBay for around $30 or $40.

Her IQ wasn’t the only thing Jayne Mansfield liked to show off... 😉

What a sad end for her. To me, Mansfield's intelligence was apparent underneath the characters she portrayed.
