Mansfield 66/67 was conceived when writers P. David Ebersole & Todd Hughes couldn't get their narrative The Devil Made Her Do It produced, and instead decided to present their Mansfield/LaVey story as a documentary. More than 100 students and staff from Leeds Beckett University worked with the filmmakers to bring the film to life,  inviting Ben Wilkins to re-mix the film in Leeds as a Master Class.
The film was released theatrically in North America for Halloween 2017, and in the UK in April of 2018.
Mansfield 66/67 is largely made up of modern day interviews with celebrities, historians, & psychologists, interspersed with scenes from Mansfield's library of work, performance art by students working on the film, and animations. It summarizes the career of actress Jayne Mansfield, spending the bulk of the film detailing her relationship with Anton LaVey, the Church of Satan, and the 2 years leading up to her death in 1967.
The film's soundtrack was released in 2017 by The Ebersole Hughes Company Records and Tapes featuring: Robert Davis, James Peter Moffatt, Donna Loren, The 22.214.171.124's, The Wayfarers, Ann Magnuson, White Rabbit Club, Mikey Silverman, Larra Anderson, and Maurice Gainen.
