RIP: Actress and Golden Age sex symbol Jane Russell passed away today in her Santa Maria home with her family by her side. She was 89.
Russell is best remembered for her spicy silver-screen debut in Howard Hughes’s The Outlaw, and for starring opposite Marilyn Monroe in the Howard Hawks classic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
Concerning her shapely measurements, comedian Bob Hope once quipped: “Culture is the ability to describe Jane Russell without moving your hands.”
