Lot of six original 5X7 black and white photographs taken July 3rd 1967 in Pen Argyl PA, at the graveside funeral service for actress Jayne Mansfield. Photos are as follows:

1. Casket under the tent, loaded with flowers, 4 folding chairs facing the casket (must have been after the service as just a few people are around).

2. Partial view of the tent over the grave, showing the various floral arrangements around the tent.

3. Slightly blurry rear view of her casket being carried by pall-bearers. A police officer is in front of the group.

4. Jayne's daughter Jayne Marie being led away from the tent and comforted by a man and woman.

5. Close-up of Jayne's daughter Jayne Marie being escorted out of the car, on her way to the service at the cemetery.

6. Close up of Jayne's former husband Mickey Hargitay and Jaynes mother, along with another man.

"Do Not Copy" is not on the actual photos- These are all in excellent condition. I believe these are one-of-a-kind. They were found with other photos that were all taken by Fred Sabatine, who for over 50 years owned and operated Modern Photo in Bangor PA, just a short distance from Pen Argyl. All that is written on the back is "Jane Mansfield" but the handwriting is identical to that on the back of the other photos these were found with. I believe for some reason Mr. Sabatine was permitted to get close enough to take these photos, and developed them himself. They have a professional look to them, and I know Mr. Sabatine was an expert photographer based on his other photos I have. A great and rare set of original photographs taken almost 41 years ago at the funeral of one of the most loved and glamorous Hollywood Movie Stars!
