Jane Russell RIP

What a gal - one likes her Dorothy in GENTLMEN PREFER BLONDES just as much as Marilyn's Lorelei - and of course there is that number of hers with the Olympic team (choreographed by Jack Cole) "Ain't there anyone here for love?". Whether with Marilyn, Gable, Mitchum or Hope Jane was a swell gal. (Review of THE REVOLT OF MAMIE STOVER at Jane Russell link). She even plays "herself" in the 1964 FATE IS THE HUNTER. Nice to see she had a good innings since those heady '40s days of THE OUTLAW!
