Photographer Frank Worth was charming, witty and immediately struck up a rapport with those he photographed. Jayne Mansfield—pictured playing roulette in this gorgeous black-and-white picture from 1958—was just one star who fell under his spell.

Worth’s friend, Burt Kaiser, produced Female Jungle, the first film to feature Mansfield.
