Check Out “Young Nurse” Jeane Manson! From Playboy Model To Actress To Singer! My “2020 Sex Kitten Countdown” Has Her Triple Bill!

Celebrating the Fascinating Career Of Jeane Manson!

One reason I love my “2020 Sex Kitten Countdown” is to give credit to Cult Movie Queens who may not be as well known as they deserve to be – and in this case, it’s a wildly fascinating story!

Meet Jeane Manson!

If you don’t know her that’s OK…I didn’t either!

Jeane Manson was born in Cleveland, Ohio. She was an Actress and Model, but it was what she did after that is so interesting to me!

So, just how did I come across Jeane?

Well, as some of you may know from other stories, I collected movie newspaper ads growing up, and this was a “Sexy Nurses” triple bill at my local Seattle drive-in!

Get Ready To Be “Nursed” Back to Health!

What a “night at the movies” this was!

The Aurora Drive-In was always “flexible” with their checking of ID, so my friends and I routinely got into “R”-rated shenanigans like this wild triple bill!

The main feature was “The Young Nurses” and it had a hilariously over-the-top poster – check out all of the tag lines they include – every one of the a double entendre!

Check out the trailer for “The Young Nurses” a classic slick’s of exploitation cinema!

When she appeared in “The Young Nurses” in 1973, Jeane dropped the last “e” from her name and was credited as Jean Manson.

She did the same for “Dirty O’ Neill” and “Terror Circus” the following year.

But it’s what she did on the printed page that made her a star!

Manson hit the big time when she was chosen as Playboy’s Playmate of the Month for August 1974 – and as you can see, it was a great choice!

She appeared in the film “From Hong Kong with Love” in 1975, but it didn’t seem that film stardom was in the cards for her, as her credits across film and Tv were sporadic….however, there were those pictorials:

Jeane’s Career Path Takes A Musical Detour!

Here’s the fascinating part of Jeane’s story!

In 1976, she released the song “Avant de nous dire adieu”. Yes, she moved to France and became a Singer!

In 1979, she represented Luxembourg in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “J’ai déjà vu ça dans tes yeux”.

Manson’s Musical High Note!

Guess what? She was a mega-hit!

Jeane sold over 20 million records worldwide from 1976-1996!

In 1996, she recorded the first country & western album by a female singer in French.

In fact, her music career was probably bigger outside the US and here in the States!

Ultimately, Jeane Manson was awarded “The Order of Merit” by the Government Of France for her dedication to environmental causes.

Since 2012, Jeane has lived in Spain. An incredible career that took a fascinating turn!

Jeane Manson is a great example of an Actress / Model who left that business to achieve success elsewhere – and a great example of the positive impact that appearing in a magazine like Playboy can have:
