Jane Russell, Ahead of Her Time (But A Head’s Not What We’re Thinking Of)
Old-school actress JANE RUSSELL passed away yesterday. She was 89. She had been suffering from "a respiratory-related illness." Sad to see THOSE lungs collapse.
Jane first became infamous for her role in the 1940 western "The Outlaw". The poster for the movie featured Jane, who was 19 at the time, posing in a blouse that was falling off her one shoulder . . . and showed some cleavage. That was VERY racy at the time, and caused the movie's release to be delayed nearly a DECADE.
