Jane Russell, you will be missed!
June 21, 1921 – February 28, 2011
I first saw her in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" when I was younger. At that time, I had only known Marilyn Monroe, whom I adored. But when I saw Jane Russell in that movie I remember thinking, "Wow. She's just as stunning and sexy as Marilyn, only she's a brunette." She always striked me as a strong woman who didn't take s*** from anyone. Since then, I've seen more of her films and she's woderful in all of them.
