Jayne Mansfield's Car
- 2 hr 1 min
Jayne Mansfield's Car centers around the Caldwell family of Morrison, Alabama during 1969. A trio of Caldwell brothers, their sister Donna and their father Jim are at odds with the Bedford family, whose father and son are also veterans of two World Wars. The Bedfords are visiting from London to attend the funeral of Kingsley Bedford's spouse, who also happens to be the ex-wife of Jim Caldwell and the mother of his children. This slice of life film takes its title from the automobile in which actress Jayne Mansfield was riding when she was involved in an accident that took her life in 1967. When a promoter at a local side show brings the car to the Morrison area to place it on exhibit, Jim Caldwell decides to invite Kingsley Bedford to accompany him on a short trip to gawk at the strange piece of memorabilia in which a Hollywood legend lost her life in the most bizarre manner.
