Three Times the Mansfield
Single Room Furnished (1966)

* (out of 4)

Jayne Mansfield's final film has her playing three different roles. The film starts off with a young woman fighting with her mother and then an older man sits the girl down and explains why young love can be bad. We then flash to the story of Frankie and Johnnie (Mansfield) and their troubled lives. We then meet Charley (Fabian Dean) and his relationship with Flo (Dorothy Keller), which could be in danger because of a pregnant woman named Mae (Mansfield). Finally we meet a prostitute named Eileen (Mansfield) and see her encounter with a sailor.

SINGLE ROOM FURNISHED will always have an appeal since it was the last film that Mansfield created and it's somewhat entertaining getting to see her try acting in three different parts but there's just no way around the fact that this is a pretty darn boring movie from start to finish and there's very little going for it. In fact, I'm a little confused at what the point of the movie was since it certainly wasn't good enough to try and go for "Oscar gold" and it didn't feature any exploitation material that would have made it a good sell for drive-in theaters.

Mansfield had already appeared nude in some sexploitation movies so one can see why she wanted to accept these roles since it would give her a chance to act. I'm not going to say she was awful in any of the three roles but obviously drama wasn't her strongest thing. Still, she wasn't horrible, she wasn't great and in reality she was decent and at least holds you attention. The segment dealing with the Dean character is mainly a rip-off of MARTY and holds a little weird interest, although you have to wonder why that segment is even needed.

SINGLE ROOM FURNISHED is a pretty bad movie that most people are going to want to skip. Fans of Mansfield might be interested in seeing it but that's about it.
