Female contestants in Hastings, UK posing for the cameras in a Marilyn Monroe look-alike competition in 1958.  One of the most popular sex symbols in the 1950 and 60s, she shot to fame with movies like The Asphalt Jungle, Niagara, The Seven Year Itch, and Some Like It Hot.  She was involved in several high-profile men, including Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Joe DiMaggio, and possibly JFK, who she sang “Happy Birthday Mr. President” to.  The iconic actress died due to a reported drug overdose in 1962 at the age of 36.  How would you think Jayne Mansfield would have fared in this contest?
