In Memory of Jane Russell

Jane Russell

June 21, 1921 - February 28, 2010

Jane Russell was a talented and beautiful actress as well as a really wonderful person. She starred in 24 films from 1943 - 1970, with her most well known being her first film The Outlaw, in which she was directed by Howard Hughes, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) which starred her opposite Marilyn Monroe. As one of the Hollywood's biggest stars, Jane's memory will most certainly live on. 

R.I.P. Miss Russell, you will be greatly missed.


  1. She was so good in Gentlemen prefer blondes.

  2. Loved her in Gentlemen Prefer Blonds. She was such a great combination of intelligence and beauty. The thinking man's Marilyn. Not to say that Marilyn was actually dumb, but she was usually expected to play a flibberty-jibbet.
    Thanks for posting.
