Swoon over… Jane Russell

March 1, 2011

So Jane Russell died today at the age of 89, so I thought we could all pay tribute to a real screen goddess.

So lovely!


Her first movie, with Howard Hughes was Outlaw, her first mean and moody character.

My favourite movie of hers is Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, I watched it because Marilyn is in it (she is still my favourite) but Dorothy (Jane) plays the clever brunette to Marilyn’s dizzy blonde role, she is feisty and independent and is just looking for fun.

She does of course fall in love in the end, but its on her terms. I love her.
