Today would’ve been Jayne Mansfield’s 85th birthday. The voluptuous star of “The Girl Can’t Help It” (1956) and “The Wayward Bus” (1957) perished in a 1967 car crash that also killed the driver and her boyfriend. In the backseat were her three kids, all of whom survived. Daughter Mariska Hargitay (b. 1964), who went on to become a major TV star in her own right, has said losing her mom at such a young age has been “the scar of my soul.” #jaynemansfield #rip #celebritybirthdays #gr8erdays #mariskahargitay #movies #sexsymbols #thegirlcanthelpit
Today is the 117th anniversary of the birth of legendary actress Agnes Moorehead. A Mercury Player, she earned four Oscar nominations. Among her most memorable films: “Citizen Kane” (1941), “The Magnificent Ambersons” (1942), “Mrs. Parkington” (1944), “Johnny Belinda” (1948), “Raintree County” (1957) and “Hush ... Hush, Sweet Charlotte” (1964). She is iconic, however, for her flamboyant performance as Endora on “Bewitched” (1964-1972). She died of cancer in 1974, one of scores who worked on the film “The Conqueror” (1956) to die in this way; an urban legend connects the seemingly high rate of cancer to the film’s location shoots near a nuke testing site. Her mom lived to be 106. #agnesmoorehead #gay #lgbt #bewitched #citizenkane #orsonwelles #hushhushsweetcharlotte #movies #tv #RIP #celebritybirthdays #gr8erdays

Born on September 5, 1946: Legendary rocker Freddie Mercury of Queen. I've wrote "Bohemian Rhapsody" (1975), one of the most recognizable hits of all time, and many more. One of rock's most popular performers and a dynamo live, he never came out as gay in spite of his flamboyant, gender-playful persona. He died of AIDS on November 24, 1991, a day after confirming he had the disease. #freddiemercury #celebritybirthdays #queen #gr8erdays
