Gail Russell Facts
Her death certificate and the California State Death Record shows her date of death as August 27, 1961. Many sources give her date of death as August 26, possibly because her body, found on August 27, had been dead for at least a day. But August 27 is the official date of death.

Her brother, George Russell, who was five years older than Gail, became a musician.

Her blue-eyed, dark beauty was frequently compared to Hedy Lamarr throughout much of her career.
