"It seems like years ago, you'd talk to anyone, and they'd have a story about her," said Frank Ferruccio, head of Mansfield's online fan club. It's his collection of memorabilia on display at the Heritage Center. He also has a biography of the actress, "Diamonds to Dust: the Life and Death of [Jayne Mansfield]," coming out next month.
