Jane Russell: Passed At 89

For those of you that do not know this lady was a true screen legend. She was THE bombshell during the 40s and 50s. If you take a look at some of your pictures you will see she was a talented model as well. Jane Russell passed away at 89.

Jane Russell was said to be a pillar of health by family but a bad cold came and then she was gone. She died Monday morning at her Santa Maria,CA home. Even at such a ripe age it is sad to see a legend go. Jane Russell will be greatly missed.

The first producer to ever put her on the silver screen was Howard Hughes. He signed her to a 7 year contract in 1940. Not long after this he put her in his production of “The Outlaw” which was a film about a hot and heavy romance between Billy the Kid and a woman named Rio. Jane Russell played the part well.
