After enrolling in 1950, she continued her studies at Southern Methodist University, where she studied acting, before moving to Austin, Texas to pursue dramatics at the University of Texas.

After her success with Playboy, Mansfield eventually received a steady stream of acting opportunities, including appearing in “Pete Kelly’s Blues”, “Illegal”, and “Hell on Frisco Bay.”
