Isn't that Gus's third wife? The one who had an unfortunate accident with the pig loppers?

@DrewDad,
She's not a very good actress... that smile is as phony as a three dollar bill.

But, her daughter is an excellent and charming actress. Isn't she?

She doesn't look like anyone I've ever seen on screen or otherwise. The shots look like the kind of thing that used to be posted outside of strip clubs.

Agreed. Although there are some similarities, it's not her.

And, by the way, Jayne Mansfield was born in 1933.

Anyway, Ms Mansfield wasn’t exactly known for her smile but rather the smile she put on the faces of men who were well aware of her real assets.

Perhaps Johnny Carson said it best: “Here they are, Jayne Mansfield"

I did not know she had a child.

@OmSigDAVID,
Her daughter is Mariska Hargitay, she's on Law and Order.

And the actress you're looking for looks like a stripper to me as well.

she was a stripper; I dunno.

@DrewDad,
The backdrop also looks really cheap.

If not a stripper per se, perhaps a wannabe who paid to have "starlet" photos taken for her portfolio.

She could have still gone somewhere after that, but also maybe not.

@sozobe,
That scene looks familiar; very vague in the back of my mind.
I wonder if that is from a Jayne Mansfield movie that I saw in the 1950s.

@daveerf,
Jayne Mansfield wasn't the most attractive actress of her time but she was prettier than this woman - and she had a bigger bust.

I 'm not SURE that its her,
but I think I saw her in that scene in a Jayne Mansfield movie of the 1950s.

@OmSigDAVID,
David that is what she looked like when she lived in Austin Texas in the early 50s . She would do anything for publicity.

She would come into the drugstore where I worked and park her headlights on the fountain counter. She drove poor Petey the cashier nuts.
