Jane Russell was a very special lady. Gorgeous, hilarious, talented, a brilliant actor-- she could do anything. Jane Russell was always the outspoken one; she had beliefs, ideas, thoughts...and she said them. I love watching her in movies. I don't think anyone could help but love her. She's not in any way a forgettable actress, or person.
It's funny, when I first saw Gentlemen Prefer Blondes years ago, I was mesmerized by Jane Russell. I thought, and still do think, that Marilyn Monroe was brilliant in the film. But, Jane just stole every single scene in the movie. She just can't help it.
That's Jane Russell in every movie (and real life too). She practically dares you not to give her your undivided attention.
She will be greatly missed...
