Classic Movie Legend Tribute: Jane Russell


Happy Birthday to Classic Movie Legend, Jane Russell, born June 21 in 1921!

What does a classic film fanatic think of when the name Jane Russell pops up? I think a certain Howard Hughes quote might answer that question fairly succinctly, “There are two good reasons why men to go to see her.” Despite those…let’s call them assets, she was able to break the mold of pure sex symbol and become a successful Hollywood actress, working in a number of genres.
